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. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
