VERONA — With the help of DNA identification, the sheriff’s office was able to charge a Verona man with breaking into a residence on Point Rock Road in the Town of Lee back in October.

Deputies said Christopher F. Brazie, 26, of Verona Mills Road, was taken into custody Wednesday as a result of a DNA hit made on evidence secured at the scene at the time of the initial investigation.

Brazie was charged with felony second-degree burglary. He was arraigned in Oneida County Central Arraignment and sent to county jail in lieu of $10,000 cash bail or bond.

The suspect will later appear in Lee Town Court.
