To find the culprits of a New Year’s Day burglary on Penn Street, investigators only had to follow footprints in the snow. The victim called police, reporting someone had broken in and taken two television sets, an Ipad, and a Nexus tablet. Officers saw footprints in the snow leading to a neighbor’s home. As a result, they obtained a search warrant for that house and recovered the stolen property.
