Police Followed Footprints In the Snow To Make Arrests

PRESTON, Md.- Authorities in Caroline County say two people in Preston heard a knock on their door in the middle of the night. It was just the beginning of real-life nightmare.

The Caroline County Sheriff's Office says a man says a man knocked on the door of the home on Newton Road early Wednesday morning, claiming he needed to use the phone because his car broke down.

Police say when the people inside did not answer, the man kicked in the door and held a gun to one of the victim's head.

Investigators say the man demanded money and prescription drugs, and then ran away with some prescription medications he stole.

Police say they actually tracked footprints in the snow to a nearby house and a further investigation led them to make three arrests in the case-- Timothy and Robert Spence; and Jennifer Orr, all of Caroline County. All three are charged with armed robbery and related offenses.
