Commonwealth v. Christopher McCowen

Cape & Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe announced today that anyone who voluntarily gave a DNA sample to police from January through March of 2005, the dates of the so-called "DNA Sweep", may retrieve their sample.

This can be accomplished by calling the District Attorney's office at 508-362-8113 and indicating whether you would like to come in or have it mailed to a particular address.

Those samples which remain after the date of December 20, 2006, will be destroyed at an appropriate facility\.
