UNION, Conn. (WTNH) -- A Manchester teacher was arrested Saturday in connection with an attempted scrap metal theft, police said.
The attempted theft happened last Wednesday, in the area of Old Brown Rd., in Union.
At that time, police said 41-year-old Natalie Dix was parked down the street from where a second suspect was attempting to steal scrap metal from a land owner's property.
According to police, while Dix was waiting for her partner, troopers noticed her during a routine patrol and discovered the crime in progress.
At the same time, a resident reported the male suspect up the street taking the scrap metal.
Police said Dix and the male suspect were also seen in the area a week prior to the incident, and were interrupted by a neighbor as they were in progress of stealing scrap metal.
The male was not located and his identity is unknown at this time.
On Saturday, Dix was arrested during a motor vehicle stop on I-84 Westbound in Union, at which time police said she was driving the wrong way on the exit ramp.
The Manchester School District confirmed that Dix is a teacher there.
On the school district's website, Dix is listed as a R/L & Math teacher at Elisabeth M. Bennet Academy, which is described as a "Public 6th Grade Academy."
Dix, of 67A Main St., Wales, Mass., was charged with 6th-degree conspiracy to commit larceny, accessory, and interfering with an officer.
Bond was set at $1,500. Dix is scheduled to appear in Rockville Court on August 19th.
