A Verona man has been arrested in connection to a burglary that happened more than a year ago in the town of Lee, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.

On Wednesday, 26-year-old Christopher Brazie of Verona was arrested and charged with second-degree burglary.

Deputies say in October 2016, Brazie allegedly broke into a residence on Point Rock Road in the town of Lee. Brazie was arrested Wednesday after a DNA hit was made from evidence that was secured from the scene at the time of the initial investigation.

Brazie was arraigned and sent to the Oneida County Jail on $10,000 cash bail or bond. He’s scheduled to return to the Town of Lee Court at a later date.
