 A crook dropped stolen copper and other items as he ran from an E. Washington Ave. construction site this morning as police were rolling up to the scene for a burglary in progress. A security company employee - who was watching video from an off-site location - contacted the MPD after a motion activated camera began recording the crime. The stolen property was returned, but the thief got away.
