He is charged with grand larceny.
A vacant Wal-Mart in Brockport is no longer under consideration by the federal government to house illegal immigrant children.
Under current law minors who enter this country illegally without a parent or guardian, cannot be deported right away.
So the government needs to find places to house these children. Federal officials were also considering a former Kodak facility in Greece and a vacant hotel in Buffalo as housing locations, but have decided against those sites as well.
