Charlevoix Co. Police Follow Footprints To Catch Thief

A Charlevoix County man admitted to breaking into a Boyne Falls restaurant, the Boyne Mountain Ski Patrol room and a vehicle being serviced at Erickson's Repair Shop.

As part of the plea, two larceny charges and a possession of marijuana charge were dropped.

The officer who tracked him down, followed Wingo's footprints in the snow, say the footprints lead from the restaurant, to the vehicle, to where Wingo lived. The officer spotted the stolen items in Wingo's car.
