Vehicle burglary suspect nabbed

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Acting on a tip about a man snooping around parked vehicles on Pine Street, police charged a South Street resident with burglary early Friday.

Timothy J. Roberts, 42, 93 South St., is charged with third-degree burglary, fifth-degree possession of stolen property and petit larceny.

Patrol officers responded to Pine near High Street about 2 a.m. after taking a call from a concerned citizen about a black male, wearing a black jacket and a hoodie, walking up to vehicles on Pine Street.

Roberts, who matched that description, was stopped, questioned and frisked for weapons. In the process, the arrest report said, officers found Roberts in possession of an unopened pack of cigarettes, chewing tobacco, a lighter, a pocket tool, a watch and $15 in loose change.

Roberts was charged after a patrol officer matched his boot prints to footprints leading from a property in the 100 block of High Street where the owner confirmed an unopened pack of cigarettes and about $2 in loose change were missing from her vehicle. Roberts’ boot prints also matched footprints near several other vehicles in the area, the report said.

As of Friday afternoon, police had not taken any other reports from affected vehicle owners regarding missing property, according to Detective Capt. Richard Podgers.

Roberts is being held without bail until his arraignment Monday in City Court.
