A Solvay man is facing charges for his alleged involvement in stealing copper wire from in and around military buildings at the Verona Test Site on Germany Road.

The Oneida County Sheriff's Office says 26-year old Frank Ruggiero was arrested and charged with burglary.

The thefts happened during the summer and fall months of 2012.

The location was a test site for the fomer Griffiss Air Force Base and is still owned and monitored by the Air Force.
