Police: Footprints led to Bucks Co. burglar

Police say a Bristol Township man accused of burglarizing his neighbor's home left some evidence behind that led to his arrest: his footprints.

Officers arrested 22-year-old Michael Payne early Saturday morning.

Investigators say Payne told them he broke into his 85-year-old neighbor's home on Pine Avenue looking for pain pills.

But when the elderly woman threatened to shoot him, he ran off leaving a set of fresh footprints in the snow.

Those footprints helped lead police to Payne.
