LOCKPORT - A Niagara Falls man pleaded guilty Monday to stealing a rifle and a shotgun April 18 from a house on Lake Road in Wilson.

Kristopher L. Buehler, 29, of 18th Street, admitted to fourth-degree grand larceny. Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas said she will give Buehler no more than a year in jail when he returns to court April 21.

The stolen property was recovered in Buehler’s truck, Assistant District Attorney Claudette S. Caldwell said. Assistant Public Defender David E. Blackley said in court last week that Buehler told deputies that he and his mother found the weapons on the side of the road.
