Falls man admits to $13,000 Newfane burglary

LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls man who stole nearly $13,000 worth of property from a Newfane barn last summer pleaded guilty Monday in State Supreme Court.

Jason R. Davis, 37, of Willow Avenue, admitted to reduced charges of attempted third-degree burglary and attempted third-degree grand larceny, and agreed to pay $12,915 in restitution as part of his sentence. State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. said he will give Davis six months in jail and 4 1/2 years of probation when he returns to court Feb. 9.

By that time, Davis will have been in jail for nearly six months since the crime, which occurred Aug. 7-12, with thefts from a barn and surrounding property on Fuller Road.

Assistant District Attorney Ryan K. Parisi said the stolen items included a long list of auto parts, vehicle and indoor heating radiators, mower decks, a rototiller, a tow chain and pieces of steel. None has been recovered.
