A Mansfield man was arrested for stealing a copper downspout from St. Mary's Church, according to the Sun Chronicle.
Video footage from a surveillance camera and a tip from an Easton police officer led to the arrest of 33-year-old Michael Belcher of Webb Place in Mansfield. He pleaded innocent in Attleboro District Court to charges of larceny from a building and malicious damage.
Easton Police informed Mansfield Police about three weeks ago that they were investigating a string of similar incidents, and are now investigating whether Belcher is their culprit as well. He is free on personal recognizance and is due back in Attleboro District Court Feb. 26.
