HAMBURG, NY ( WKBW ) The snow came in handy for Hamburg Police Friday night.

Officers responded to the Sunoco Express gas station on St. Francis Drive just after 7p.m. The station's clerk said a robber pushed her, stole cash from the register, and fled.

Officers investigating outside found footprints in the snow.

They followed them to a house a block away, where they found a 21 year old man with burglary tools. He was arrested and charged with robbery.
