Mattapoisett Police Bust Copper Pipe Thieves
Mattapoisett Police say they have arrested 3 brothers who broke into at least 35 homes in town. Glen Bowman, 28, Alex Bowman, 40, and Kevin Bowman, 33 are all originally from Mattapoisett, but now live in New Bedford. Police say the brothers targeted seasonal homes on Crescent Beach, Hollywoods Road, Pico Beach Road and Prospect Road for copper water piping and outdoor shower heads.
They were arrested last night near Crescent Beach after police witnessed a car drop off two of the men, then pick them up a short time later. A marked cruiser pulled them over on Angelica Ave and found copper piping in plain view inside their vehicle. Shower heads were also found in the car. The brothers are also accused of stealing tools and small motors from outdoor sheds.
