3 arrested after Wyoming police follow footprintsApril 10, 2013 @ 6:07 pm
RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - Three men have been accused of stealing items that include a samurai sword _ but according to central Wyoming police the suspects weren't exactly ninjas.
Authorities in Riverton say they tracked the men down by simply following a series of footprints in the snow leading away from a home where the robbery was reported.
Police Capt. Eric Murphy tells The Riverton Ranger ( http://bit.ly/10TH5px) that the tracks led investigators from the victim's house straight to another house where authorities found three men in their 20s "digging through" stolen property that included several other types of swords.
Police say they also found marijuana and drug paraphernalia in the home late Monday night. They say the suspects were arrested and face various robbery and drug charges.
