LOCKPORT – A Tuscarora Indian Reservation man, paroled from state prison two months ago, pleaded guilty Wednesday to an attempted all-terrain vehicle theft from nearly two years ago.

Lucas R. Mitten, 26, of Mount Hope Road, admitted to petit larceny and is to be sentenced May 1 by Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas. The sentence will include $85 in restitution. The crime occurred on Ridge Road in the Town of Lockport on April 2, 2012.

Mitten had been in prison for a 2007 conviction for a gas station robbery and a burglary. He was arrested in June 2012 and charged with possessing an ATV that was stolen in Cambria in March of that year. That sent him back to prison as a parole violator.
