LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls man who told police he would beat a burglary charge pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor charges Tuesday in Niagara County Court, as a felony charge was dismissed.

Marc Madore, 40, of 24th Street, is to be sentenced May 14 by Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas for second-degree criminal trespass and petit larceny.

The latter charge stemmed from shoplifting a beer at a 7-Eleven store on Pine Avenue in the Falls Aug. 7, which is when police also charged him with a July 22 break-in at a Buffalo Avenue residence. When he was arrested, Madore reportedly told police that not only would he beat the charges, he would “take this city down like the Twin Towers.”
