    Detectives investigating the theft of construction tools from a Marathon work site earlier this month uncovered a trove of other equipment they say was probably stolen, as well as a large safe, in a trailer where the suspect in the original case was known to stay, according to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office. Deputies arrested Christopher Saccente, 48, on burglary and grand theft charges on Wednesday after they found about $700 worth of tools reported missing from a construction site in the trailer, located on 74th Street, Adam Linhardt, sheriff's office spokesman, said.
