Icy road helps police nab suspect

December 14, 2010

Police were able to track down and capture a suspected robber after icy road conditions hampered his getaway. The robbery occurred about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Sakitumi Discount liquor store near 30th Street and Lafayette Road in Indianapolis. Officers say the clerk ran out of the store and had enough time to write down the license plate number of the getaway car because it couldn't gain traction on the ice. Police tracked the suspect to a house near 16th Street and Lafayette Road. The suspect surrendered peacefully about an hour later after a SWAT team was called in.
