Tracks in the snow help investigators recover cache of items allegedly stolen from cars in Oakfield
An accused thief left tracks in the snow in Oakfield today that helped local law enforcement connect him to a series of car break-ins on Coe Avenue, Main Street and Maple Avenue.
Deputy Chris Parker received the original complaint of items missing from a car in Oakfield and was able, with the assistance of Trooper Frank Valetta and Investigator Roger Stone, to follow the footprints to other vehicles that were discovered to also have items missing.
When investigators caught up with the suspect he allegedly had with him several GPS units, a radar detector and numerous power cords.
Some of the items belonged to victims who didn't even know yet that their belongings had been stolen.
Investigators believe all items that were stolen were recovered.
Charged with petit larceny was Jordan Ray Smart, 21, of Gibson Street, Oakfield.
Smart may face additional charges, including numerous charges of petit larceny.
Smart was issued an appearance ticket and released.
The ground this morning was covered with a thin, but fresh layer of snow, which aided Parker, Valetta and Stone in their investigation.
Released?? he should have had at least 1 hand removed.
He needs to get him some of those "special" shoes that federal agents wear that don't leave footprints in the snow
I just looked at his facebook page..he's a Justin Bieber wannabe
Just flash him Doug and he'll never be prowling again as it's hard to do when you have been traumatically blinded LOL.
