A man accused of stealing about $20,000 worth of copper from a York warehouse on Monday apparently returned Thursday to break in and steal again, according to a police report.
York police were stationed at the Tex-Fil yarn warehouse this week following Mondays burglary.
Around 2 a.m. on Thursday, police say, 25-year-old Ronald Wayne Hedgepath Jr. of Rock Hill attempted to break into the Kings Mountain Street warehouse.
Officers approached Hedgepath as he was trying to break the lock on a warehouse door on Thursday. He was wearing camouflage, according to the police report, and he first tried to hide from police.
As officers moved in on Hedgepath he ran, scaling two fences and fleeing into the woods, the report states.
