Police use footprints in snow to catch burglary suspect

Cold weather clues helped police in Texas track a burglary suspect through footprints in the snow.

Amarillo police say Collin Thomas Ferguson was arrested on four burglary counts and a charge of possession of a controlled substance.

Police answered a call about a vehicle burglary. A man leaving for work saw someone in his parked car.

The suspect ran, returned after apparently leaving his mobile phone in the vehicle and then fled again.

Officers followed footprints in the snow and found Ferguson hiding in another parked vehicle.
