Town of Niagara man charged with machine shop burglary

LOCKPORT – A man who was kicked out of a court-supervised drug treatment program because he allegedly committed a burglary was arraigned Monday in connection with that crime.

Anthony D. Evrard, 30, of Laur Road, Town of Niagara, pleaded not guilty to an indictment charging him with burglary, grand larceny and criminal mischief, all in the third degree. Evrard allegedly broke into Stoelting Machine on Niagara Falls Boulevard in Wheatfield Aug. 17, Assistant District Attorney Kevin D. Canali said.

On Oct. 31, Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas ejected Evrard from the drug treatment program he entered in March, after pleading guilty to third-degree burglary and two misdemeanors in the Dec. 28, 2013, theft of an all-terrain vehicle from a home on Porter Road in the Town of Niagara. He faces up to seven years in prison for that, with sentencing set for Jan. 16.
