Trail Leads to Burglar Suspect in Tyler

A cut on an burglar's ankle helped Tyler police solve a crime.

Tyler police say 20-year-old Henry Richey cut his ankle while trying to break into a home in the Stonegate subdivision.

Richey left a trail of blood at the home and at his girlfriend's apartment. Firefighters had a hand in helping police solve the crime after they remembered treating a man with a cut to his ankle at that same apartment.

Richey was arrested on traffic warrants and later charged with the burglary as well.
