Falls man admits to power tool thefts

LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls man was admitted to the judicial diversion program of court-supervised drug treatment Wednesday by Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon after he accepted a plea offer in connection with three thefts of power tools.

Timothy J. London, 43, of Buffalo Avenue, pleaded guilty to third-degree burglary and risks seven years in prison if he fails to break his drug addiction.

London was charged with breaking into two parked vehicles at the Niagara Falls Home Depot store on May 28 and stealing more than $2,000 worth of tools from each vehicle. He also was charged with stealing more tools, including a generator, from the construction site of a Microtel hotel on Niagara Falls Boulevard in the Falls June 9.

His sentence will include a restitution tab of $2,449.
