SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Police say footprints in the snow helped them nab a man suspected of breaking into a home in Spartanburg.

Local media outlets report that arrest documents show 31-year-old Drew Lamb of Spartanburg was arrested on burglary and other charges in connection with the incident Saturday night.

Records show a woman heard someone breaking into her home and yelled for the intruder to leave before her burglar alarm went off and police were called.

Though the suspect had fled, arriving officers say they were able to follow his tracks in the snow to nearby woods. Officers say Lamb stumbled multiple times in the slippery conditions, allowing officers to catch him.

Police say Lamb was wearing camouflage and carrying crowbars, pliers and a pocket knife.

It’s unclear if he has an attorney.
