Fort Drum man sentenced to probation for burglary try


A Fort Drum man was sentenced Friday in Jefferson County Court to five years’ probation for stealing numerous items from his former landlord in Antwerp.

Lloyd J. Timmons III, 21, also was sentenced to an unspecified amount of time served at the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building after pleading guilty Dec. 7 to third-degree attempted burglary. He admitted that on June 8 he entered his former landlord’s residence on County Route 194 in the town of Antwerp and stole items. Police said at the time that a safe, cash, fishing poles, knives, helmets and various electronic devices were stolen.

Mr. Timmons shared proceeds of the theft with Andrew E. Lehmann, 22, Austin D. Fox, 21, and William S. Hatfield, 22, all of Fort Drum. Each pleaded guilty earlier to fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and was sentenced to a one-year conditional discharge, with orders to perform 100 hours of community service. Mr. Timmons’s probation supervision is expected to be transferred to Texas, where he expects to relocate.
