Woman pleads to three theft charges, enters drug treatment

LOCKPORT – A Town of Niagara woman pleaded guilty Wednesday in State Supreme Court to a felony and two misdemeanors regarding crimes in Niagara Falls April 7 and 8.

Nita Snyder, 37, of Isherwood Drive, admitted to third-degree burglary, petit larceny and fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property. Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. said Snyder will remain behind bars until a bed is found for her in an inpatient drug treatment facility, where she will begin her assignment to the judicial diversion program.

Snyder admitted stealing a woman’s credit card April 7 and burglarizing a home on Bollier Avenue the next day. She must pay the victims a total of $1,270 in restitution, Deputy District Attorney Doreen M. Hoffmann said.
