Freshly fallen snow helped authorities in Gladwin County track a suspected thief across three townships.

The Saginaw News reports sheriff's deputies went to a home in Bourret Township on Friday afternoon and found tire tracks in the freshly fallen snow.

Authorities followed the tracks through Clement Township and into Secord Township, where they say they spotted a 51-year-old man taking a generator and tools from a garage.

They say he was arrested after fleeing onto the ice of Secord Lake.

The man's name wasn't immediately released. He was being held at the county jail.
