    Police in central Pennsylvania say they found a suspected groper of a fast-food worker by following a trail of curly fries.

    It started when a female employee at an Arby's in East Lampeter Township, Lancaster County, called police Wednesday night saying she was groped by a man as she handed over his order at the drive-thru window.

    The employee gave police a description of the car, which was found outside a motel less than a mile away.

    Authorities said they spotted a trail of Arby's curly fries and sauce from the vehicle to the room of 36-year-old James Cowan of Fitzgerald, Ga.

    He was charged with a single count of indecent assault and released on bail pending a Nov. 1 hearing.

    It couldn't be determined if he had an attorney.
