HUNTINGTON STATION - Officials say some Huntington Station residents are getting a new tool to help fight crime. 

Police are giving 500 Huntington Station residents Plant DNA kits, according to Newsday.

The kits contain markers, invisible to the naked eye, but detected under ultraviolet light. 
 
Police say you spread the plant DNA on your property in an effort to catch potential burglars.
 
Suffolk has approved $25,000 toward the training of officers on how to track and locate stolen property with the kit.
