Falls man pleads guilty to three felonies

LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls man scored a hat trick of felonies Thursday, pleading guilty three times in State Supreme Court.

Tony L. Moore, 34, of Niagara Avenue, admitted to attempted second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and a felony count of driving while intoxicated. Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. said he will probably sentence Moore concurrently when he returns to court Aug. 26. If Moore was sentenced to the maximum on all three charges, the longest he could serve would be seven years in prison, if Kloch sticks with concurrent sentencing.

Moore admitted driving drunk on Centre Avenue in the Falls April 1, 2015, after having been convicted of DWI in the Town of Niagara and impaired driving in Niagara Falls, both in 2010. On July 28, police raided Moore’s home and found a loaded revolver, along with 1.75 ounces of cocaine stashed in a box of frozen pierogies in the freezer and $695 in cash, which Moore forfeited. On Jan. 16, Moore was caught with 10.79 grams of cocaine.
