If the shoe fits, arrest him.
Apparently, it did and Fairfax County police then arrested a man suspected of breaking into a truck parked at the Towne Place Suites in Springfield Tuesday night.
The owner of the truck saw the break-in attempt and called 9-1-1. The suspect, meanwhile, fled on a bicycle. But a shoe was left behind in the truck.
Officers responding to the call saw a man on a bicycle wearing only one shoe. They stopped him, matched the shoe he was wearing with the one in the truck and arrested 33-year-old Samuel Bucey of Washington, D.C. He’s been charged with destruction of property, grand larceny and possession of a firearm by a non-violent felon.
