    Authorities say footprints found in freshly fallen snow helped them find a car burglary suspect.

    Evesham Police tell the Courier-Post of Cherry Hill that officers spotted the tracks shortly before 3 a.m. Monday, when they responded to a report of car burglaries in process near Yorktown Drive and Charter Oak Lane.

    Officers followed the footprints through numerous yards to an address in the first block of Candlewood Circle.

    Brendan Detwiler, a 21-year-old Marlton resident, was charged with two counts each of theft and burglary to a vehicle and theft.

    He also was accused of possessing drug paraphernalia, police said.
