An alert neighbor led to the arrest Saturday night of a Norwalk man and woman accused of stealing copper gutters from a new home under construction in Westport’s Old Hill area, police said.

The neighbor called police at about 9:50 p.m. after seeing lights, hearing loud banging and spotting people acting suspiciously at the site at 10 Stony Brook Road, police said.

Just as officers arrived, they saw a vehicle exiting the driveway, stopped it, and saw a large amount of copper in the rear seat area, police said. They also had a stolen power saw worth about $1,200, according to police.

The occupants were detained while other officers checked the property. It was determined that the copper in the vehicle was part of a gutter system taken from the construction site, police said.

Arrested were Christopher Rodia, 42, and Cassandre Scire, 19, both of 19 Vollmer Ave., Norwalk, police said. Officials said Rodia was also carrying Oxycodone pills in a plastic bag.

Rodia was charged with larceny, conspiracy to commit larceny, criminal trespass, possession of narcotics, and failure to have prescription drugs in a prescribed container, police said. He was held on $10,000 bond for a Aug. 7 Norwalk Superior Court appearance.

Sciere was charged with larceny, conspiracy to commit larceny, and criminal mischief, and held on a $2,500 bond, also for a Aug. 7 court date, police said.

Coastal Construction Group of Westport is erecting a house on the property which sold in July 2011 for $1,350,000.  (See WestportNow Sept. 20, 2011)

Good for the alert neighbor!!  Neighborhood watch really does work; what a fantastic example of, “See something, say something.”

it’s tough when you are addicted to opiates. Once you get to that point you are no longer responsible for your actions. Sometimes the best thing is for an opiate addict to get jailed and be forced through withdrawal and/or methadone treatment. This girl is only 19 this would be a great opportunity to get away from this guy…far away.
