Police say they were able to track down a man who damaged a vehicle in Iowa City by the tread of his shoes.
 
Officers were called to the area of the University of Iowa's Water Plant at 41 West Burlington Street abuot 12:30 a.m. Friday, where a disturbance had been reported. There they found Sean Jeffries, 27, of Lakeland, Fla., and nearby a vehicle with "significant damage" to the roof and windshield, including footprints in the dust on the vehicle's roof.
 
Police used those footprints, matching the tread marks with the tread on Jeffries' shoes.
 
Though police do not give an exact damage estimate, the vehicles' owner estimated it was somewhere between $1000 and $10,000.
 
Due to the amount of damage, Jeffries is charged with 2nd Degree Criminal Mischief and Public Intoxication and faces more than five years in prison, if convicted.
