ROANOKE, Va. -

A man from Moneta is in custody after trying to steal copper from the old Huff Lane School in Roanoke.

It happened just after 2 a.m. Monday morning.

Officers were originally responding to a break-in and got word en route to the building that the suspect was on the roof.

That's where Eric Black was arrested a few minutes later.

He faces several charges.
