Washington deputies nab burglary suspects after following footprints in the snow

Two suspected burglars who “forgot” to cover their tracks were arrested in Washington state over the weekend after deputies followed their footprints in the snow, authorities said.

Deputies responded to a burglar alarm in Tacoma around 2:40 a.m. on Saturday and spotted two suspects fleeing from a house, the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department said. Two deputies went to check on the home while one kept an eye on the suspects who were running through a field.

The deputies at the home found that a window had been broken on the door to a detached garage and called for a K-9 officer to help search for the fleeing suspects.
