Colorado Springs police arrested 45-year-old Richard Cook Anderson on suspicion of a construction site burglary that happened nearly two weeks ago. 

Anderson is accused of stealing $500 worth of building materials on June 7 from a home being built in the 11000 block of Modern Meadow Loop, police said. A witness said they saw Anderson taking supplies about 5:45 a.m., police said.
