A snowstorm hit the northeast Tuesday, forcing people to stay in their homes as 1 to 2 feet of snow piled up outside. But that hasn’t stopped police from patrolling and keeping communities safe.
In Wisconsin, police received a phone call from someone who discovered footprints in the snow around cars that were broken into, Wisconsin State Journal reported.
The police followed the footprints to a home where they arrested Logan Hall, 18, and Dawson Uhalt, 17, for tentative theft. Hall was arrested for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia as well.
The Pennsylvania State Police, Pennsylvania National Guard, and Suburban EMS teamed up to escort a 23-month-old child to a hospital 80 miles away for a heart transplant. They all made it to the hospital safely, according to a Facebook post.
NYPD braved the snow to capture two miniature ponies who broke out of their NYC stables. WYFF4 reported an off-duty officer saw the animals and captured them with towing straps. Police returned the horses safely to their stables.
In Ogden, N.Y., police went live with video on Facebook to update citizens on the conditions and warn them not to leave their homes.
