Footprints in snow guide Faribault police from burglary scene right to suspects
|Daniel Sanchez's footprints led to Faribault police solving a burglary mystery.|
The two allegedly broke into a business in Faribault and left the scene without being apprehended after an alarm went off. But police, following fresh footprints in the snow, were able to locate the bumbling duo hanging out in a nearby cemetery. Now they're each facing felony third-degree burglary charges.
Officers were able to follow the footprint trail from the store to a cemetery, where they found Sanchez, 21, and Silva, 19, hanging out. Looking at the suspects' shoes, police were able to confirm that they matched the footprints leading from the burglarized business to the store and from the store to the cemetery, and the two were arrested.
Talk about being caught red-handed... or, rather, snow-footed.
