Ogdensburg man sent to prison for tire thefts


CANTON — An Ogdensburg man arrested in connection with a pair of tire thefts in summer and fall 2010 was sentenced Thursday in St. Lawrence County Court to up to a decade behind bars.

Joshua R. LaRock, 31, of 513 New York Ave., was sentenced to five to 10 years in state prison for third-degree burglary and first-degree criminal contempt.

Mr. LaRock was one of three men who broke into a warehouse at Regan’s Collision Service, 904 Champlain St., on July 20, 2010, and stole 16 Cooper tires worth $2,602.08.

The trio allegedly did it again Sept. 26, 2010, this time taking 28 Cooper tires valued at $3,217.20.

The tires were found in the possession of Patrick W. Compo, 1 Williams St., in October 2010, according to Ogdensburg police.

As a part of his sentencing, Mr. LaRock was issued a total of $750 in court fines, fees, and surcharges and restitution of $5,331.80, which has been reduced to a civil judgment.

In other County Court action this week:

Lloyd V. Lennox, 26, of 53 Tallman Road, Ogdensburg, was sentenced Thursday to one to three years in state prison after pleading guilty to second-degree vehicular assault, a class D felony, and aggravated driving while intoxicated, a class A misdemeanor.

Mr. Lennox was arrested in July 2012 year after he caused a two-car crash that sent a woman to the hospital with head and neck injuries. He also was issued $1,320 in court fines, fees and surcharges.

Daniel J. Carter, 25, an inmate of Clinton Correctional Facility, formerly of Ogdensburg, was sentenced Tuesday to four to 12 years in state prison after a May 12 guilty plea to third-degree arson, a class C felony.

Mr. Carter set a 2007 Jeep Wrangler afire outside the home of Christopher Palmer, 712 Champlain St., on Jan. 17, 2012.

The Jeep, which belonged to Mr. Palmer, was destroyed, and the vinyl siding of the house was damaged in the blaze.

Connor I. Warden, 17, Potsdam, was sentenced to one year of interim probation after pleading guilty to criminal possession of a weapon on school grounds, a class E felony.

Mr. Warden was the driver on March 18 when he and Sawyer M. Pignona, 16, also of Potsdam, headed to the parking lot at Colton-Pierrepont Central School, Colton, “to scope it out for a fight,” bringing a rifle with them.

If Mr. Warden successfully completes his interim probation, he will earn the opportunity to have his felony plea vacated in exchange for a misdemeanor.
