Herkimer Street man arrested for stealing from former employer

A 34-year-old Herkimer Street man was arrested on felony charges Thursday for allegedly stealing tools, buckets of paint and paint stripper devices from a Plymouth Avenue building restoration company from which he was recently fired.

Willis Brown was charged with fourth-degree grand larceny for the thefts, which police said occurred after he stole a key to the business the day he was terminated several weeks ago. A video camera system set up by a neighboring business allegedly captured him entering the business, according to a police report.
