An eagle-eyed Fairhaven Police officer helped bring about the arrest of a Westport man who was charged with stealing copper piping from a Fairhaven home. 

Officer Marc Darmafol was driving his cruiser on Sconticut Neck Road on Wednesday, when he noticed a man walking on the side of the road, carrying a backpack and a duffel bag.  Darmafol stopped and questioned the man, who said he was working in the area, and the duffel bag, which he had discarded, contained his tools.

Police located the duffel bag and found copper pipes inside that appeared to have been cut from exsisting plumbing.  Officers then followed the man’s footprints back to a nearby home, and found it had been broken into and pipes had been cut. 

Twenty-five year old William Lewis of Sodom Road, Westport was charged with breaking and entering in the daytime, possession of burglary tools, and larceny from a building.  He appeared in New Bedford District Court on Thursday.
