Police Use Snow Tracks to Catch Suspects in Chase
WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) Authorities in northeast Iowa have used snow from a major storm to catch two men who initially eluded a car chase.
Waterloo police arrested Richard Sturdivant and Quon Lewis Cooper Thursday night after tracking the pair's footprints in the snow.
The men initially led police on a pursuit following an attempted traffic stop. Police stopped the car chase because of poor driving conditions from the storm.
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports officers found the pair's car in a ditch a short time later. They followed footprints in the snow and arrested the men after searching the area.
Courts records show Sturdivant's charges include eluding police and possession of marijuana. He remains in jail. Cooper was charged with interference and has been released.
Records do not list attorneys for them.
