ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – Police in Alaska’s largest city say a man robbed a fast food restaurant and attempted a get-away by burying his coat in fresh snow.
Anchorage police Tuesday morning received a report of a robbery at a Taco Bell.
The suspect wore a black, hooded jacket and a black towel covered his face. He claimed to be carrying a gun, and after demanding money, he fled on foot.
As patrol officers responded, dispatchers took a call of a man taking off his outerwear and burying it in snow three blocks from the restaurant.
The clothing matched what the suspect had worn. Officers followed tracks and spotted a man several blocks away who was not dressed for temperatures in the low 20s.
Police arrested the 34-year-old man. He faces charges including robbery.
