    SOUTH BURLINGTON — Police in South Burlington say they’ve made one arrest and are seeking a second person in connection with the theft of about $1,200 worth of copper last weekend.

    Police say they arrested 51-year-old Ronald Robar, of Richmond, on an outstanding warrant from a previous case and that he will be charged with grand larceny in the copper theft case. Police say they are seeking a second man seen in a surveillance video of the theft.

    The investigation began Monday, when a company called Vermont Mechanical on Williston Road reported the theft of copper coil packs during the weekend.

    A call for comment to the office of Robar’s attorney was not immediately returned.
