AppleInsider:

According to a report by Henry Lee of the SF Chronicle, Apple’s security patrol called in the police to investigate a burglary in progress Saturday evening.

The man was found on the site of the former HP campus that was acquired by Apple in 2010. The company began actively tearing down the buildings at the site in August of this year. Apple will construct its Campus 2 on the site.

The building are currently being gutted, and recyclable materials, like copper, are being collected. Projects such as Apple’s often attract thieves, as copper pipes and wiring can bring around $3 per pound.

When the police K-9 unit responded to the call, they discovered Glenn Cartwright, 56, of Belmont hiding in some bushes. When he refused to obey orders, the police dogs were allowed to attack him, said the police report.

A bag of tools was found near an exit gate, along with the copper. Police arrested Cartwright on suspicion of burglary, and possession of burglary tools.

Cartwright was treated at a nearby hospital for bite wounds and taken to Santa Clara County Jail in San Jose. His bail was set at $11,000.
