LOCKPORT – Jamarius D. Scott, 21, of Linwood Avenue, Niagara Falls, pleaded guilty Wednesday in Niagara County Court to taking part in the Feb. 17 burglary of NYC Jewelry and Electronics Outlet, 1605 Pine Ave. in the Falls.

Scott admitted to a reduced charge of attempted third-degree burglary and was scheduled for sentencing June 6 by County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas, who released the first-time offender from jail pending sentencing.

Assistant District Attorney Claudette S. Caldwell said charges are pending against two other men in the case. Police said two laptop computers and five cellphones were stolen from the store after a window was smashed. Scott was ordered to pay one-third of the total restitution cost of $2,000.
