MAN GETS JAIL, PROBATION IN NEW YEAR'S BURGLARY

A man who left a New Year's Eve party to burglarize the home of another partygoer was sentenced Wednesday in Niagara County Court.

Christopher Beard, 32, of 19th Street, Niagara Falls, will start a five-year probation term with six months in jail, Judge Peter L. Broderick Sr. ordered.

Beard had pleaded guilty to third-degree burglary and resisting arrest. Early on Jan. 1, he broke into a home on Stephenson Avenue in Niagara Falls after leaving a New Year's Eve party. The homeowner returned, and Beard forced him to surrender a wallet containing $880.

In another case, Anthony Myles, 45, of Eighth Street, Niagara Falls, admitted to a reduced charge of attempted third-degree burglary, and Broderick scheduled sentencing for June 15. Myles broke into a Cedar Avenue home May 19.
