Footprints in the snow gave them away

SPOKANE (AP) — Police in Spokane followed footprints in fresh snow from a market where burglars stole more than 400 packs of cigarettes to a nearby apartment where officers arrested two young men.

Police say the treads of the men’s wet shoes matched the footprints found near Sonnenberg’s Market early Wednesday, The Spokesman-Review reports.

Police also had video surveillance images of the intruders.

Police obtained a search warrant and recovered several backpacks filled with cigarette packs.
