Kalamazoo Deputies follow cold trail straight to suspects

Wanted criminals leave a trail for deputies to follow, thanks to a light snowfall overnight..

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Deer hunters like the snow because it makes it easier to track their prey. That also works for County Deputies tracking bad guys when conditions are right, and they were perfect just before 1 a.m. Saturday in Comstock Township.

Kalamazoo County Deputies tried to pull over a vehicle for a traffic violation on East Michigan and it sped away at higher speeds on the snowy surface than the deputies deemed safe.

No problem, they just followed the tire tracks in the snow until they caught up with the suspect vehicle.

When the car sped away the second time, they used the same strategy. Then they got a report of a car parked where it didn’t belong behind a home on Trimble Avenue.

It turned out to be the car they were looking for. It had been stolen in Kalamazoo on Friday.

Once again the two occupants of the car left clear foot prints in the fresh snow that led deputies straight to a home in the neighborhood where the suspects were hiding.  They were arrested.

Both suspects were already wanted on outstanding warrants.

A list of additional charges is pending.
