According to the tweet, OPP officers on patrol spotted a break and enter incident happening and stepped in to intervene.
And when it came to tracking the culprits, they were helped out by an apparent lack of environmental consideration.
The alleged thieves left a trail of snowy footprints that led directly to the house, police say.*
The two are now facing charges of breaking and entering and stolen property.
Police referred to the two as a "dynamic duo" in their tweet, and posted a gif featuring the antagonists from Home Alone.
