Former Felchar Workers Charged In Copper Theft

Two Binghamton men have been accused of stealing thousands of dollars worth of copper from their former employer and selling the metal to scrap yards.

Authorities say 29-year-old Reinaldo Montanez and 42-year-old Francisco Mujica have been charged with felony grand larceny.

According to state police, the men are believed to have taken large quantities of copper from Felchar Manufacturing in Kirkwood over an extended period of time.

Investigators say the copper was sold to scrap dealers in Syracuse.

More than $23,000 was confiscated by police after a search warrant was executed at the residence the men share in Binghamton.

Montanez and Mujica were arraigned in Kirkwood town court and sent to Broome County jail.
