From there, police followed footprints in the snow and found a man matching the witness description at a Motel 6 in the 4300 block of Interstate 40.

29 year-old Sherman Lee Cooper was arrested and charged with burglary of a vehicle, as well as an outstanding traffic warrant.

It is undetermined at this time whether Cooper was behind the Pampa vehicle thefts.
