SPOKANE, Wash. -- Spokane Police tracked down two suspects early Tuesday after following their footprints in the snow.
It happened around 2 a.m. near W. 23rd Ave. and S. Browne Street, according to police.
Officers received multiple calls about garage burglaries in the area and found fresh footprints in snow leading away from one garage. With the help of a K9 unit, officers tracked the footprints until they observed a vehicle fleeing the area.
Officers believed the people in the vehicle fit the description of the suspects provided by witnesses and stopped the car. Officers were able to match the footprints in the snow at the crime scene, to the men in the car, Darren Bard, 19, and Nicholas Whitney, 20.
Both subjects were booked into jail for two counts of 2nd Degree Burglary. Police believe the two suspects may be responsible for more burglaries in the area. If anyone in the area was a victim of a garage burglary, even if items were not stolen, they were asked to file a report with Crime Check at 456-2233.
