Snow Footprints Lead Police To Suspects

SHEFFIELD, Ala. (AP) - Police in north Alabama followed
footprints in the snow to track down two men they say broke into a
convenience store.

Sheffield police detective Chad Carruth says officers arrested
26-year-old Jantzen Jackson of Tuscumbia and 28-year-old Ketric
Dewayne Mason of Sheffield around 3:45 a.m. Monday.

Carruth says the men are accused of taking 56 cartons of cigarettes, 24 packs of cigars and a donation change box from the counter.

Carruth says officers responding to the burglary found sets of
footprints in the snow leading from the back of the store to Mason's home about six or seven blocks away.

Carruth says the two face third-degree burglary charges.

The men were being held without bail in the Sheffield city jail.
