Footprints in the snow lead to nearby building

Thieves were caught after police tracked footprints they left behind in the snow.  Two men held up a store in Whitnash, Warwickshire last Saturday morning (March 23, 2013) and left with money and lottery scratchcards.  Authorities showed up to investigate and taking advantage of the snowy conditions, followed the thieves’ footprints to a nearby block of apartments.  Six suspects were promptly arrested, four of whom were eventually handed robbery charges.
