LOCKPORT – A Hartland man admitted Tuesday in Niagara County Court that he collected $4,582.50 in unemployment benefits while actually holding a job.

Garrett J. Oliver, 31, of Hartland Road, is to be sentenced for fourth-degree grand larceny May 14 by County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas. Oliver collected the money between April and June 2011, Assistant District Attorney Laura T. Bittner said.

Oliver remains in custody in lieu of $25,000 bail. He faces an unrelated misdemeanor warrant in Amherst and a potential probation violation charge in Tompkins County.
