Heath Allen Parks, 48 of Plainville, was arrested this week after reports said he and another person destroyed a lock that had been placed on his water meter for lack of payment and then placed another meter on the side before stealing numerous gallons of water.

Reports added that the cost of damages exceeded $1,000, in addition to the amount of water that was obtained.

The incident occurred from November 2020 to December 2020 at a home on Calhoun Road.

Parks is charged with damaging or interfering with property of public utility companies.
