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.
