LIVERMORE FALLS, Maine — Workers planning to winterize a house on Cedar Street on Wednesday found it stripped of about 200 feet of copper pipe, police Chief Ernest Steward Jr. said Thursday.

A property management company sent the workers to the home. The pipe was cut from the plumbing system downstairs, he said. Its estimated value is $200.

The pipe is believed to have been stolen sometime in October.
