Syracuse man faces year in jail for stealing phone in Watertown


WATERTOWN — A Syracuse man faces a year in the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building after admitting Monday in Jefferson County Court that he stole a woman’s cellular phone.

Christopher E. Hickey, 24, pleaded guilty to fourth-degree attempted grand larceny. He admitted that he stole a phone from Tammy Snyder on Sept. 21 in Watertown. Police said at the time of his arrest that the phone was taken after Mr. Hickey allegedly threatened to punch Ms. Snyder.

Sentencing was set for May 15.

In other court activity, Garrick C. Cook, 19, Antwerp, was sentenced to an unspecified amount of time served at the PSB and five years’ probation after pleading guilty March 5 to two counts of third-degree burglary and one count of second-degree attempted burglary as a result of three incidents.

He admitted that on Aug. 29, with others, he entered a town of LeRay residence and stole a safe and a gun; that on Sept. 30, again with others, he entered a town of Antwerp residence and stole cash, and that on Oct. 5 he and others entered another home in Antwerp and stole money.

In addition to jail time and probation supervision, he is expected to be ordered to pay his share of about $23,000 in total restitution.
