Authorities are charging a person with theft after Rock Hill police stated the person stole over $25,000 in copper from the home.

The homeowner stated to police that on Friday she was without power and her electric meter had not been working.  The homeowner said she found a hole in the wall on the second floor of her house, which police determined was where the burglar took the copper from in wires.

Police are suspecting the person entered through the storage area of the residence, which happened to be for sale at the time.  A bedroom at the home had also been ransacked, but nothing had been taken, according to a report.
