LOCKPORT – A Town of Lockport man who violated the terms of his probation in a grand larceny case was sentenced to one to three years in prison Wednesday by Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas.

Patrick T. Vail, 23, had pleaded guilty to stealing numerous stainless steel items from the Niagara Foods plant in Middleport in April and May 2010 and selling them for scrap. He served six months in the County Jail to begin a five-year probation term that required him to repay the company $10,000.
