Rehoboth -

After a yearlong investigation, a Fall River man, who is already serving a six-month sentence for a break-in, faces similar charges from Rehoboth police.
Ross Copeland, 24, was charged Oct. 23 with breaking and entering a building at nighttime, wanton destruction of property over $250, larceny over $250 and larceny from a building.
The charges stem from a break-in in November 2007, during which $125,000 in valuables, mostly jewelry, were stolen from a Rehoboth home.
Police made headway with the case after the victim recently called for an update. Patrolmen Brian Ramos, Jason Ferreira and William Walker took another look at the evidence and within a day, uncovered more of a trail leading them to Copeland.
The officers also learned that Copeland is currently serving a six-month sentence for an unrelated house break charge in Dartmouth. He began serving time in August and is scheduled for release in January.
Rehoboth Police Chief Stephen Enos said Ramos had been working the case for about 11 weeks with the assistance of the Bureau of Criminal Identification at the Rhode Island Attorney General's Office and Massachusetts State Police Crime Lab in Lakeville.
Enos said more arrests may follow, and police are still tracking down the items stolen in Rehoboth.
