Police investigating a burglary arrested two juveniles after their shoes allegedly matched shoe prints left in the snow in an east Colorado Springs neighborhood.

Police received calls about two males, one possibly carrying a handgun, trying to break into vehicles on the 1600 block of Sanderson Avenue, off Palmer Park Boulevard, about 3:30 a.m. Sunday.

Officers were able to follow fresh shoe prints on the snow from a burglarized home on Sanderson Avenue, to the 1300 block of Wooten Road, about half-a-mile away, police said.

The two juveniles were found hiding inside a garage and taken into custody, police said.

Items stolen from the home on Sanderson Avenue were found on or around the juveniles, according to police, and a stolen handgun was discovered where one of the males was hiding.

Both juveniles were arrested on suspicion of first-degree burglary, first-degree criminal trespass, theft and prohibited use of a firearm, police said.
