A deputy said he found 23-year-old Coleton Zanola walking in the area Friday and after talking to him, the deputy took him into custody.

The deputy said Zanola told him he and his friend were trying to get into garages to keep warm and get out of the snow.

Officials said the deputy saw a man peak around the building and then took off running.
