Police make two arrests in large copper theft
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- Two arrests were made following a large copper theft in Kirkwood. Police arrested Francisco Mujica, 42, and Reinaldo Montanez, 29, for grand larceny.
They say the two were former employees of Felchar Manufacturing, and stole a large amount of copper from the company over a period of time. Police say the men then sold the copper to scrap yards in Syracuse.
Police say a search of the suspects' home in Binghamton turned up more than $23,000 in cash made from the sale of that stolen copper.
