LOWVILLE — A Mannsville man was sentenced Friday in Lewis County Court for stealing large truck and backhoe parts.

Frank D. Snyder, 41, of 410 N. Main St., Mannsville, was sentenced to six months in jail, five years’ probation and $6,600 restitution on a charge of third-degree burglary, to which he pleaded guilty May 11.

Mr. Snyder was accused of, on Oct. 12, stealing two dump truck rear ends, a backhoe bucket and a truck tailgate from a building owned by Terry Groff in the town of Denmark.

He is expected to be sentenced on burglary charges Tuesday in Jefferson County to similar jail and probation terms for stealing copper and scrap metal from abandoned buildings in the towns of Henderson, Worth and Brownville.

Terms from Lewis, Jefferson and Oswego counties all are to run concurrently.

Also in Lewis County Court Friday:

Robert R. Austin, 21, Greene Correctional Facility, Coxsackie, and formerly of Pulaski, was arraigned on charges of third-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief and petit larceny and pleaded innocent. His case was adjourned to Oct. 19.

Mr. Austin was accused of, on May 1, 2010, breaking into Creekside Market in Barnes Corners, damaging a door and cash register and stealing an unspecified amount of cash and cigarettes.

He was arrested by state police based on a DNA match with blood left on broken glass at the scene, according to a release. He was indicted earlier this month by a grand jury.

Since August 2010, Mr. Austin has been serving a six- to 17-year sentence in state prison on three counts of third-degree burglary from Oswego County Court. He was sentenced in September 2010 in Jefferson County Court to a concurrent two-to-four-year prison term on a charge of third-degree criminal mischief for helping to damage a vending machine at Precision Car Wash on Route 11 in the town of Watertown.

Kurt J. Hazzard, 41, of 6835 Mechanic St., had his case of three counts of first-degree rape, two counts of third-degree rape, four counts of endangering the welfare of a child and single counts of second-degree rape and first- and third-degree criminal sex act adjourned to Aug. 10.

Mr. Hazzard was accused of having sexual intercourse with a girl under the age of 17 by forcible compulsion on occasions in August, November and December, all in the town of Croghan. He additionally was accused of having sexual contact with another underage girl on one occasion.
