East Aurora scavenger Richard "Tiny" Gleed was released from jail Wednesday after serving his latest sentence for unlawful storage of items outside his South Street home.

Gleed was discharged from Erie County Correctional Facility in Alden after reporting Monday night to the county's Holding Center in Buffalo for a six-day jail sentence that was imposed that same night in Aurora Town Court.

Aurora Town Justice Douglas Marky had sentenced Gleed Monday on a 2002 violation after he failed to meet all of the court conditions he was supposed to by Oct. 25. He had additional weeks to comply because of a postponement in the court case until Monday.

Still outstanding is Gleed's failure to completely remove a broken-down camper that had been in the back of his yard and that he moved near the street. Tires are leaning against it, along with a weed cutter that was on top of the camper when Marky and Aurora Prosecutor Jeffrey Markello toured his property Monday.

Because he was credited with two days of "good time" and another day for reporting before midnight on the day the sentence was imposed, Gleed served just three days.

A powerboat and box trailer remain behind his home. Gleed is due back in court Nov. 29 for another court tour of his property.
