LOCKPORT – A Town of Niagara man was arraigned in State Supreme Court Friday on an indictment that charged him with burglarizing two commercial buildings last year, and he rejected a preindictment plea offer in a third break-in, which now may be presented to a grand jury.
Garrett M. Schinabeck, 32, of Rhode Island Avenue, pleaded not guilty to third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief and fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property for his alleged role in an Aug. 4 break-in at a warehouse at Ashland Advanced Materials in Niagara Falls, Assistant District Attorney John P. Granchelli said. Bryan Harvey, 28, of 59th Street, Niagara Falls, was arraigned in that case Wednesday.
Schinabeck also is charged with third-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief, fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and third-degree grand larceny in connection with a Sept. 5 burglary on Hyde Park Boulevard in the Town of Niagara. He also may be indicted in connection with another Hyde Park Boulevard break-in, where he and another man allegedly were caught in the act Sept. 26, officials said.
