CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Footprints in the snow helped police track down a pair of men accused of robbing people at two local convenience stores.

According to WCNC, Tajae Rashawn Robinson and Devekico Wright were arrested within hours of the robberies.

Police say the pair robbed a man at a 7-Eleven on Mallard Creek and then fled in the victim’s car.

The men left in the victim’s car and robbed another 7-Eleven on Concord Road.

Officers discovered fresh footprints in the snow at the first location. The footprints were leading towards the store.

Police say the duo walked to the store, but fled in the stolen vehicle.

University City Division Officers then followed the footprints behind the store, tracking it to a neighborhood along the 9100 block of Exbury Court.

They found the suspect vehicle and the two men sitting inside with the stolen goods.
