Cops follow snow tracks, make pizza theft arrests

JOLIET, Ill. (AP) -- Robbers might think twice about committing a crime when there's snow on the ground. Or at least not head right home. That's the lesson after police followed footprints from where a pizza delivery man was robbed to a house on the same block and arrested four teens late Tuesday.

Police say two teens waited on a porch for the pizza man and the two others, one holding a bat, approached him.

Police Chief Patrick Kerr said the pizza man turned over pizzas, sodas and $200.

Police said an officer followed the tracks to the house and found two pizza bixes, the pizza man's debit card and a baseball bat.
