Fresh snow turned out to be quite helpful for finding a burglary suspect.

Pocono Mountain Regional Police said footprints in fresh snow helped Stillwater Lakes security officers to follow footprints into a home at 403 Hummingbird Dr., Tobyhanna Twp.,

Monroe Co.

It happened around 4 a.m. Saturday in Stillwater Lake Estates.

Officers found copper electrical wire at the end of the driveway, so they called police.

Police found Joshua E. Smith at the Hummingbird address, plus a tool used in the burglary and drug paraphernalia.

Smith was arrested and charged with burglary, theft, criminal trespass, possessing instruments of a crime and possessing drug paraphernalia.
