Westport police said today they arrested three Bridgeport men caught in the act of cutting out copper pipes from a house scheduled for demolition.
A contractor responsible for demolishing the home at 10 Debra Lane called police at 3:44 p.m. Monday saying he had just arrived on the job site and found three men had broken into the residence and were in the basement cutting out copper pipes to sell to scrap yards, police said.
Officers arrived on scene and found the three suspects outside at a rental truck, which was blocked in by the contractor’s truck. Taken into custody were Hector Luis Ramirez, 47, Yero Walker, 32, and Rolex Webb, 32.
They were charged with third-degree burglary, a felony, sixth-degree larceny, and possession of burglary tools, both misdemeanors, police said. They were held on $25,000 bond for an Aug. 13 appearance at Norwalk Superior Court.
