2 charged with burglary after taking scrap metal from abandoned Concord building
The Concord police arrested two men yesterday for taking scrap metal from an abandoned building off Storrs Street.
Manuel Vazquez and David Anderson, who are both homeless, were arrested and charged with burglary, the police said.
Two officers on bicycle patrol in downtown Concord were dispatched to the area off Storrs Street near the railroad tracks around 10 a.m. yesterday, the police said. The officers heard sounds of pounding on metal as they approached the building, and saw scrap metal being thrown from a second-story window. The police said they found Vazquez and Anderson in the building, which is privately owned and marked “no trespassing.”
Vazquez, 59, and Anderson, 22, will be arraigned this morning at Concord’s district court.
