Probation for man in Falls burglary

LOCKPORT – A man who took part in the burglary of a home on 18th Street in Niagara Falls was placed on five years’ probation Monday by Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon.

Eric C. Shimmel, 30, of 13th Street, had pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree burglary, as had Christopher L. Perham, 24, who lives across 18th Street from the scene of the crime. Sheldon postponed Perham’s sentencing a week to check on reports of witness harassment.

A TV set and jewelry were stolen from the victim’s home June 29, 2014.
