LOCKPORT – A man under indictment in connection with a July 5 stabbing in Lockport was jailed Monday by Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas after she was told he had been arrested three times since that incident.

Justin J. Snead, 21, of Lincoln Avenue, had his bail hiked from $10,000 to $25,000 after Deputy District Attorney Doreen M. Hoffmann told the judge of Snead’s third arrest since the stabbing: a drug arrest after his vehicle was pulled over by Lockport police about three weeks ago.

Snead also was arrested Oct. 9 when police said they found crack cocaine in his car after a Lockport fender-bender. Defense attorney James J. Faso Jr. said Snead also faces a criminal mischief charge in the Town of Lockport.

Snead was indicted on charges that he stabbed a man twice in a fight in the parking lot of Lincoln Place Apartments.
