HOQUIAM, Wash. (AP) -- Police say a Hoquiam burglar left his shoes behind as he escaped on a mountain bike.

The homeowner heard noises about 5 a.m. Wednesday and scared off the man who fled with a bag of belongings.

Sgt. Shane Krohn told KBKW a police dog was unable to track the suspect because of the weather, but officers did find the shoes.

The burglar also dropped the bag containing stolen game systems and numerous knives.
