So I got home last Saturday night to find that some cretin had busted in my back door and swiped some stereo equipment. Dagnabit. The cops came, filled out a report, and an evidence guy came & dusted for prints. As part of this, he took my fingerprints to see if the prints found were just mine, or whether they belonged to the goon who decided to relieve me of my consumer electronics.
My question: Suppose that at some point in the future, I get it into my head to knock over the First National Bank. The cops then manage to extract two fingerprints and a partial thumbprint off of the note I pass to the teller. Would the elimination prints taken from me recently still be on file, and could they match them with my hypothetical bank robbery prints?
