DNA forensic testing applied in a, um, major case of yoghurt…theft

Where would I get this, except from Kevin Underhill’s LoweringTheBar:

Finally (for today), police in Taipei have been accused of wasting taxpayer money for spending hundreds of dollars on a forensic investigation, including multiple DNA tests, in order to find out which of a woman’s roommates drank her bottle of yogurt. According to the report, the woman became furious after finding the bottle mysteriously empty, and when none of her roommates would confess, she went to the police. They brought the roommates in for questioning, and when no one cracked, police reportedly spent $585 on six DNA tests in an effort to find the culprit. If you speak Chinese, the video you can find at the link may reveal whether they actually found the thief, or it may not.
