Police Track Break-In Suspect 4 Miles In Snow

Posted: Updated:

SPRINGPORT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Police in southern Michigan say they followed footprints in the snow for about four miles before arresting a man they believe is responsible for several break-ins.

The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports the track began about 3:45 a.m. Wednesday at the scene of a break-in at a shed.

Troopers found footprints in the snow and sent out a K-9 team.

Michigan State Police Sgt. David Stamler says police found several other area buildings and vehicles had been broken into. Police followed the tracks to a home, where the 21-year-old man from Jackson County's Springport Township was taken into custody.

The man was jailed pending formal charges. Police are asking other potential victims in Springport Township to contact investigators.
