Rochester man accused of stealing copper pipe from vacant house in Byron

posted by Howard B. Owens in crime, byron.

An alert neighbor helped local law enforcement catch a man who may have been stealing copper pipe from vacant residences.

Donald M. Walls, 34, of Rochester, has been jailed on $25,000 bail after being charged with burglary in the second degree, a Class C felony.

Walls was allegedly located inside a vacant house on Lyman Road, Byron, at 6:40 a.m., Sunday, after a neighbor reported suspicious activity.

Chief Deputy Jerome Brewster said the Sheriff's Office is sharing information about the arrest with State Police and law enforcement in Monroe County on the possibility that Walls was involved in similar crimes in other jurisdictions.

Yesterday morning, Deputy Brian Thompson checked several other vacant houses in Genesee County but found no further break-ins.

The investigation is continuing and is being conducted by Thompson, Deputy John Duyssen, Sgt. James Meier and Investigator Kris Kautz.

People with additional information that may be related to the investigation can contact the Sheriff's Office at (585) 343-5000.
