CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Footprints in the snow led investigators to the hiding place of one of two men accused of robbing a pizza delivery driver Friday, authorities said.

Jefferey A. Fields, 26, and Bernard V. Williams, 27, are each charged with robbery. Cook County Judge Maria Kuriakos Ciesil ordered the men held in lieu of $250,000 bail Sunday, the Sun-Times reports.

Police said they saw Fields, of Richton Park, and Williams, of South Chicago, walking in the area where a Maya's Pizza delivery driver had allegedly been robbed in the 8400 block of South Colfax.

When officers approached Fields and Williams, police said, Fields ran but Williams was taken into custody on a theft warrant. Fields allegedly ran south down an alley and east through a back yard in the 8300 block of South Manistee.

When officers got to the back yard, they said they followed the footprints in the snow to where Fields was hiding. Fields tried to run again but was eventually caught, police said. Officers then traced the footprints backward and discovered a Sig Sauer .38-caliber handgun loaded with six bullets.

The alleged victim identified the men, police said, claiming Williams held a gun to his head while Fields rummaged through his pockets. The men are accused of taking $129 from the delivery driver, records show.
