Somebody stole a snowmobile in Arlington Township, Mich., but during the getaway the thief left tracks in the snow that lead right to his door step.

The owner borrowed a snowmobile and followed the path for 10 miles. The tracks led to a chop shop, but by the time the police got there the snowmobile already disassembled.
