Two Lockport teen-agers stopped in a car with a noisy muffler over the weekend were charged with burglarizing the Gasport Marina.

The car belonged to the mother of a 15-year-old Lockport juvenile, who was turned over to his parents and charged with violating the curfew.

Deputy James K. Hildreth said when he pulled the car over on South Transit Road at about 4 a.m. Sunday, he noticed a passenger toss something out the back window. At that point, Lockport Officer Eric J. Herrington stopped to assist.

Authorities said they found, in the back seat, a portable marine radio, portable stereo, assorted snacks and a large bag containing change that had been sorted into smaller bags.

Debbie Babcock, manager of the marina, identified the items, and charges were placed against Kirk R. Miller, 17, of Gooding Street and Christopher C. Cheverie, 18, of Grand Street. They were charged with criminal mischief, petit larceny and felony burglary. They were held in the Niagara County Jail on $500 bail, and a hearing was set for Sept. 21 in Royalton Town Court.
