Footprints lead police to B&E suspects in Fairhaven

Posted: Updated:

Fairhaven Police used footprints in the snow to track down two men who broke in to a local convenience store.

Police responded to the Friendly Farm Convenience Store on Sconticut Neck Road back on February 2, just before 5:00 a.m. The front glass door was completely shattered by a concrete block.

Officers followed two sets of footprints that led to a broken champagne bottle, and eventually to a home on Day Street.

Inside, they found two 19-year-old men lying on the floor, wearing sneakers that matched the footprints in the snow and with wet, cold sneakers and cuffs. They also matched the image from the store's video surveillance.

Police arrested the two men, Jared Spangler and Tyler Smith, both of Fairhaven.  They were charged with vandalism, breaking and entering, and larceny - Spangler and Smith had stolen champagne and cigarettes from the store.
