An Ellsworth man is charged with burglary after police say he stole copper piping from a vacant house.

A State Police Trooper reportedly found 42-year old Carl Burch on the side of Route 1-A in Ellsworth just after midnight Wednesday.

The stolen pipes were allegedly located in his vehicle.

Burch apparently told police a second man was with him during the burglary.

A State Police K-9 tracked the man’s scent for eight miles before losing contact.

We’re told an arrest warrant will be issued.

Police say about $2,000 worth of copper was taken.
