A Massapequa man may have gotten away with his snowstorm robbery if he had remembered to cover his tracks.

Victor Fabian, 21, of Massapequa was charged with robbery after holding up a Dunkin' Donuts and fleeing back to his home, leaving a trail of footprints to his home in the fresh snow, according to Nassau County Police.

Detectives said Fabian went to the 1000 Carmans Road Dunkin' Donuts at 4:26 a.m. and asked for a doughnut. When the 25-year-old female employee ran his debit/credit card to pay, the card was declined, cops said.

Fabian then took out a handgun and demanded money from the employee, who complied, police reported. Fabian then fled the scene on foot toward Carmans Road.

Responding officers from the Seventh Squad noticed a single set of fresh footprints in the snow and followed them to Fabian's home, cops reported.

Officials found the debit card and clothing that matched the description of the culprit in Fabian's possession, they said. A glass pipe apparently containing marijuana and an oxycodone pill were also recovered in the home, cops said.

Fabian was charged with first-degree robbery, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, fourth-degree possession of a weapon, and first-degree criminal use of a firearm.

He was arraigned Friday at First District Court in Hempstead.
