BALTIMORE (AP) — A former Aberdeen Proving Ground employee who stole tons of aluminum from the base and sold it as scrap has been sentenced to one year of home detention.

Ronald Baker Sr., 62, of Havre de Grace was also ordered to pay more than $25,000 in restitution at sentencing Wednesday.

According to his plea agreement, Baker worked at Aberdeen as captain for a patrol boat on the Chesapeake Bay. Prosecutors say Baker stole 27,496 pounds of aluminum and other metals from a base building and sold the metals to recyclers.
