WESTPORT, Mass. (AP) - Police in Massachusetts say they’ve arrested a man charged with stealing large decorative wall stones from a beach.

Westport police say they arrested the 54-year-old Assonet man early Thursday morning, after he was seen at Baker’s Beach with two large stones in his car. The New Bedford Standard-Times reports the beach had been the target of several nights of thefts where hundreds of dollars of large decorative wall stones were pried from the property.

Police say the suspect told them he was using the stones to build a koi pond at his residence.

The man has been charged with malicious destruction of property and larceny.

Police say the cost to repair the beach wall exceeded $1,200.
