GREENFIELD, Ind. — Police investigating a home burglary reported by an 89-year-old woman arrested her next-door neighbor after following footprints in the snow to his house.

Maj. Derek Towle of the Greenfield Police Department says the woman heard a noise in her home early Tuesday and confronted a man. The suspect snatched her purse before fleeing out the back door of her home about 20 miles east of Indianapolis.

The Indianapolis Star reports officers called to the woman's home spotted footprints in the snow outside and followed them to a home where they found the missing purse with its contents still inside.

Police arrested 23-year-old Andrew M. Reeves, who was being held without bond on a burglary charge at the Hancock County Jail. It wasn't clear whether he has an attorney.
