WESTPORT, Conn. —  A 43-year-old man with ties to Westport was arrested Monday at a Norwalk scrap yard and accused of stealing copper downspouts from a home in Westport, police say.

Surveillance photos from the home showed Gregory Gabriele — who’s last known address was the Gillespie Center homeless shelter on Jesup Road — removing the copper downspouts, the arrest report says.

Gabriele was charged with fourth-degree larceny, a misdemeanor, and released after posting a $2,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 30.
