Area Man Faces Theft Charges After Allegedly Stealing, Recycling Copper Pipe

SYKESVILLE, Pa. (EYT) – A DuBois man is accused of stealing copper pipe from a Sykesville property and then recycling it.

According to court documents, the Sykesville Borough Police Department filed the following criminal charges against 47-year-old Jerrold Arnold Sisco, of DuBois:

– Theft By Unlawful Taking-Movable Property, Misdemeanor 2
– Theft By Deception-Prevent Acquiring of Information, Misdemeanor 2
– Receiving Stolen Property, Misdemeanor 2
– Criminal Mischief-Another Pecuniary Loss, Summary

According to a criminal complaint, around 9:47 a.m. on May 1, Officer Campbell, of the Sykesville Police Department, met with a known Sykesville man who stated that sometime between April 23 and April 27, someone had stolen his copper pipe with white corrosion on it from his grandfather’s property that is located near Curvex Street.

The known man stated that Jerrold Sisco lived near the property, and in February, Sisco told the victim that he would take the scrap that was at the property to the junk yard if the victim would split the money with him. The victim told Sisco that he would take care of his own scrap, the complaint states.

Once the victim noticed that the copper pipe was missing, he called around to the local junk yards, and a Reynoldsville auto wrecking company stated that they had received similar copper pipe. The victim went to the junk yard and identified the copper pipe that Sisco had allegedly recycled, the complaint indicates.

The copper pipe weighed 45 pounds and Sisco was paid $78.75 from the auto wrecking company.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. on June 14 in Magisterial District Judge David B. Inzana’s office.

A certified summons was issued to Sisco on May 9.
