Large footprints lead police to burglary suspect

Monroe police say a man’s big feet helped lead to his arrest in a burglary investigation.

The Daily Herald of Everett reported that officers responded to the burglary on Thursday morning and saw huge footprints in the frozen grass. They immediately thought of a suspect who’d been arrested in a car theft case just two days before  — a 6ft. 9 in. tall guy with size 16 shoes.

They say they drove around the area and saw the man, who reportedly had a lot of Canadian coins in his pocket — which the homeowner reported had been stolen from his vehicle.

The man was booked into Snohomish County Jail for investigation of first-degree burglary and was also was being held for investigation of possessing meth, possessing stolen property and vehicle theft.
