A 34-year-old East Delavan Avenue man was arrested early Friday for allegedly stealing about $2,000 worth of copper wiring from a product testing firm in the first block of Warwick Avenue, a street where he used to live. Darrell Lillard was chased by police and arrested in the 500 block of Norfolk Avenue shortly after officials of the vandalized firm reported their security camera captured a break-in.

Lillard was charged with grand larceny, criminal mischief, criminal trespass and obstructing governmental administration for allegedly fleeing when he saw a police car nearing the Warwick Avenue business.
