Man pleads guilty in North Tonawanda bar burglary

LOCKPORT - One of two men who burglarized Crazy Jakes on Webster Street in North Tonawanda last year pleaded guilty Friday in Niagara County Court.

James W. Dee, 54, of Main Street, North Tonawanda, was admitted to the judicial diversion program of court-supervised drug treatment. Judge Matthew J. Murphy III warned Dee that he could go to prison for as long as seven years for third-degree burglary if he fails to beat his drug problem.

The other man involved in the Nov. 4, 2015, break-in at the bar, Richard W. King, 58, of Ferry Avenue, Niagara Falls, was placed in the diversion program in January, after pleading guilty in the theft of $194 worth of liquor.
