Last week, someone made off with downspouts from a house around the corner. There was another theft, and several attempted, on nearby Saint Dunstans Road. A month ago on North Charles Street, a Homeland homeowner chased away two would-be gutter thieves in the middle of the afternoon. A home in Ruxton was stripped of its copper on Tuesday.

A tip from a 911 caller led Anne Arundel County police to arrest four people accused of cutting copper wire from a utility pole and causing an overnight power outage to 1,800 BGE customers in Odenton. The tipster called 911 early Friday morning and reported seeing two men carrying spools of wire from behind a business on Annapolis Road in Odenton, said Anne Arundel Police Chief Kevin Davis. They got into a Chevrolet Impala that had one headlight burned out. A patrol officer pulled the car over and found four people inside, along with 250 feet of copper wire and tools, including a long-handled cutter normally used for tree-trimming, Davis said.

Barry Levinson and Tom Fontana, the executive producers of "Homicide: Life on the Street," return to prime time tonight on BBC America with "Copper," starring Tom Weston-Jones. (That's Weston-Jones sitting with them in the picture above, taken in California where they were promoting the series.) Set in 1864 in New York, the series is cop drama meets frontier saga, and I like it. I loved "Homicide," "Oz" and Levinson's last TV effort, "You Don't Know Jack," a docu-drama look at Dr. Jack Kevorkian, starring Al Pacino, for HBO. But I hated "The Jury," a series the duo did for Fox. They've had some failed projects since "Homicide" and "Oz," but I think "Copper" could be a winner.
