RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - A pair of lost shoes helped Washoe County deputies track down a burglary suspect in Sun Valley.

The burglary was reported just after noon Sunday, March 10, 2019 at a home on Dickton Circle. The victim told deputies the burglar ran when confronted in the home's backyard.

Deputies found footprints nearby, which led them to a shoe stuck in the mud. A second shoe and some of the stolen property was found a short distance away.

Investigators say they found 23-year-old Donovan Taylor-Blower a short time later. He allegedly was in possession of more stolen property and some methamphetamine.
