The saying 'you can run, but you can't hide' holds especially true when there is snow on the ground. 

A trail of snowy footprints lead to the arrest of a man after allegedly trying to break into a western Newfoundland apartment on Sunday. 

According to the Canadian Press, The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary in Corner Brook were called to the building on Main Street around 4 a.m. today. 

Officials say the suspect had fled the area by the time they arrived, but had left a trail of footprints in the fresh snow. 

The footprints eventually lead them to a man attempting to break into several businesses around the Commercial Street area. 

The 20-year-old suspect was arrested and police say more charges are possible.
