What does this have to do with car purchases/repairs?

are a couple finger prints on cash register located inside a biz enough evidence of a crime

 

Whose fingerprints?  Evidence of what crime?  Are you suggesting that the fingerprints are the only evidence?  When you say "enough" evidence of a crime," what exactly do you mean?  Enough evidence to make an arrest?  Enough evidence to file charges?  Enough evidence to convict?  Something else?  Has anyone been arrested and/or charged with the crime?

Those are two different standards, and you'll need to answer all of the questions I asked if you want meaningful analysis.

Please write normally (i.e., using proper capitalization, punctuation, and sentence structure).  It makes it easier for others to read and understand what you write.

If the police know that the perp was wearing gloves, then the fingerprint obviously isn't the only evidence.

"Civilian"?  Did this happen on a military base?  Why did this person do this?

I have no idea what the second part of this is supposed to mean.

 

The owner of the business where the cash register is located apparently reported the matter to the police, and they apparently came to the scene to investigate.  One could reasonably assume they also interviewed as many persons who were on premises as possible.  The cops apparently also dusted for fingerprints (although one would assume that they'd find a number of fingerprints of employees on a cash register).  Since the police apparently identified a fingerprint of a person who wasn't an employee, one could reasonably assume they would contact that person and seek to speak with him to find out why his print is on the register.

Hi @phdnstupid

 

Welcome to the community and thanks for posting! Looks like you've already gotten some great input from the legal community. Whether or not fingerprint evidence is sufficient to indite or convict a defendant will depend widely on the circumstances of the case. If fingerprints belonging to a person who is not an employee of the store are found on the cash register, that person certainly will have some questions to answer about why his/her fingerprints are on the drawer. That being said, if there is zero other evidence, or if the person in question has a credible alibi, that may not be sufficient evidence to bring criminal charges. As pg said, if the police know that the thief wore gloves, then fingerprints may not necessarily be persuasive evidence.

 

If you are the individual in question, you may want to speak with a criminal attorney about clearing your name before charges can be brought. For a free consultation with a criminal attorney, you can click here.

 

Best of luck!
