A man suspected of groping an Arby's drive-thru worker was tracked down by police after leaving behind an incriminating trail of curly fries.

Police in Lancaster County were called to the scene of an alleged groping at an Arby's in East Lampeter Township last Wednesday night.

The victim told officers she was manhandled by a driver as she leaned over to hand him his order.

The man, who appeared intoxicated, then drove away, but a description of his Toyota 4Runner led police to a nearby Travel Lodge.

There, officers spotted "a trail of Arby's curly fries and sauce" that stretched all the way from the car, through the motel's hallway, to the suspect's room.

36-year-old James Cowan of Fitzgerald, Georgia, was subsequently arrested and charged with one count of indecent assault.

He was released on his own recognizance after posting bail and is due back in court this Friday.
