Footprints in snow lead police to suspect

February 12, 2010|By Andrea F. Siegel | Baltimore Sun reporter

Footprints in the snow led police officers to a man they believe had just broken into his neighbor's Glen Burnie home Wednesday morning, Anne Arundel County police spokesman Justin Mulcahy said.

A 39-year-old woman heard glass break around 2:28 a.m. in her home in the 200 block of Queen Anne Road and went to investigate, he said. When she encountered a man, he ran out, Mulcahy said.

Responding officers followed tracks in the snow to another house on the block, where they arrested a man who had wet clothes.

Charged with fourth-degree burglary and destruction of property under $1,000 was Jose Garcia, 19, of the 200 block of Queen Anne Road.
