A Vernon man is due back in court in three weeks after appearing late last week to answer a charge that he stole copper piping from a vacant home in town, police said. 

Troy Connor Burgess, 19, of 73 Talcott Ave., has been charged with first-degree burglary, sixth-degree larceny and first-degree criminal mischief, according to a police report. 

Police received a call from a Lawrence Street resident on Thursday night about suspicious activity at a vacant house nearby, according to an arrest report. Upon arrival, officers noticed that the house had been entered and that copper piping was missing, according to a report. 

Police were able to trace the incident to Burgess and arrested him at his home at 10:34 p.m. He appeared in court on Friday, had his initial #20,000 bond reduced to $5,000, and was given a return date of Feb. 5, police said.
