LOCKPORT – A Royalton man pleaded guilty Friday to selling stolen farm equipment for scrap last November.

Kevin Considine II, 31, of Hollenbeck Road, admitted to a reduced charge of attempted third-degree criminal possession of stolen property and was scheduled for sentencing Sept. 12 by Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas. He faces up to seven years in prison and as much as $8,000 in restitution, although a hearing may be needed to determine the exact amount.

Assistant District Attorney Theresa L. Prezioso said the victim, a farmer on Keck Road in the Town of Lockport, noticed Nov. 11 that a fertilizer wagon and a hay elevator were missing. But sheriff’s deputies learned that a witness had seen Considine at the wheel of a motor home, towing the wagon to a Chestnut Ridge Road gas station Nov. 1.
