    WEST RUTLAND — Rutland County Sheriff’s deputies nabbed a suspected copper thief in West Rutland early today and they have tied him to at least seven copper thefts in the area.

    Sgt. David Fox of the Rutland County Sheriff’s Department said Greg Munukka, 26, of West Rutland jumped out of a window of a vacant home on Smith Street when officers arrived and led them on a foot pursuit before he was caught on Marble Street near the swamp.

    Officers are still actively investigating the case and Fox said the tally will climb as they add up the thefts and damages caused by the copper burglaries.

    Fox said Munukka will be held overnight and will likely be arraigned Thursday.

    He’s currently being held on charges of burglary and unlawful mischief.

    “There will probably several counts of each once we get done getting everything tallied up,” Fox said.
