SPOKANE, Wash.--A man's own footprints in the snow in February did him in according to officers. Spokane police said they tracked Daniel Ramos for 30 blocks by following his footprints.

Ramos had a warrant out for his arrest and was in possession of drugs, according to officers.

Spokane police responded to a call of a man possibly prowling cars. That is when they followed footprints in the fresh snow for 30 blocks. The footprints led to Ramos who denied any wrongdoing.

“I know in my heart I did nothing wrong,” said Ramos.

Spokane police believed otherwise. They said neighbors called to report a man prowling cars and the snow led to be their best detective.

Police said they found methamphetamine and other paraphernalia on him.

Ramos said the alleged meth baggie was not his. He said he believed it was an energy booster inside.
