Kibler, 25, of LeVan Avenue, Lockport, was placed on probation by Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III in October after going through drug rehabilitation.

Ten days after sentencing, he was charged with possessing hypodermic needles loaded with a clear liquid, trying to arrange a drug purchase by text message, and using someone else’s urine to try to beat a drug test. Murphy set resentencing for March 8.

Kibler entered the Lockport hospital on May 7, 2016 with two rifles and a fake bomb, and forced nurses to hand over opiate painkillers.
