At 9:45 Wednesday, a man told police that someone he knows had broken into his mother's home in the 200 block of Kurtz Avenue and stripped it of copper piping, police said.
A second copper theft in the 600 block of East Market Street was reported to police at 8:05 a.m. Thursday, police said.
Police did not say if the two thefts are related.
