A trial is scheduled to begin Monday in Jefferson County Court in the case of a state corrections officer alleged to have possessed items stolen from construction sites.

Aaron A. Netto, 35, Watertown, is charged with three counts of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, two counts of fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and single counts of tampering with physical evidence and fifth-degree conspiracy.

It is alleged that on Oct. 3 in the town of Watertown, Mr. Netto possessed a refrigerator stolen from Value Homes, two generators stolen from Three Phase Line Construction, a Wacker tamper owned by Con Tech Building Systems, a Stihl chain saw stolen from Act II Construction and scaffolding belonging to McQuade & Bannigan.

It is also alleged he conspired with others to possess the stolen goods and that, during the course of the police investigation into the matter, he moved the tamper from his residence to another location, resulting in the tampering with evidence charge.
