Police took advantage of snowy conditions early Monday morning and tracked fresh footprints to a northern Colorado Springs home to catch a pair of alleged criminals.

Just after 1 a.m., officers were called to the 9000 block of Aragon Drive to investigate a report that cars were being broken into.

The person who reported the alleged crimes told police that he approached two men. One of men had apparently been seen inside the person's vehicle.

Clayton Romero and Nathan Roulier ran from the area and police were able to track them through the snow, police said. The pair confessed to breaking into vehicles and looking for valuables to steal.

Romero and Roulier were taken to the El Paso County jail and are being held on suspicion of first degree criminal trespass.
