Workers at a construction site for the new FBI headquarters in South Florida have been charged with stealing thousands of dollars in copper wire.
 
The three men work for a subcontractor at the site in Miramar, west of Fort Lauderdale. The Miami Herald reports that they added unnecessarily large amounts of electrical wire needed for the job, then got caught trying to sell the extra for more than $23,000.

  A complaint filed in federal court says the FBI learned of the scheme through a confidential informant.
 
The three men were each granted $150,000 bail at a hearing this week and will be arraigned at a later date.
 
The new FBI building off Interstate 75 is scheduled to open in fall 2014.
