Monday, officers, including a k-9 officer, responded to 142 Park St. at approximately 8:01 p.m. on a report of a burglary in progress.

The officers encountered two individuals located inside the residence, McKinnel Morton, 56, and Daniel West, 43. Subsequent investigation revealed that Morton and West had illegally entered the residence and were attempting the theft of copper piping within the residence.

Both Morton and West were charged with third-degree burglary, criminal attempt at fourth-degree larceny, possession of burglary tools, first-degree criminal mischief and second-degree criminal trespass.

Each was held on $25,000 bonds pending arraignment in Bristol court today.
