Onondaga Community College fired two security officers after accusing them of tampering with 1,410 records involving fire extinguishers and defibrillators.
Daniel Marshall and James Moran were due in Onondaga Town Court for arraignment Tuesday night, but the case was adjourned due to a paperwork problem.
Marshall faces 966 counts of misdemeanor tampering with a public record. Moran faces 444 counts of the same crime, said Chief Assistant District Attorney Alison Fineberg.
The charges stem from tampering that occurred from mid-September to mid-January, Fineberg said.
