LOCKPORT – A woman whose boyfriend pleaded guilty two weeks ago to making methamphetamine in a parked car accepted the same plea offer herself Thursday.

Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III scheduled sentencing May 29 for Barbara J. Dickenson, 22, of Spruce Street, Lockport, who admitted to fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and third-degree unlawful manufacture of meth. Matthew C. Brown, 29, of Prentice Street, Lockport, admitted to the same charges.

A third defendant, Leeanne E. Ferris of Lancaster, is mulling a plea offer, Assistant District Attorney Peter M. Wydysh said. The three were arrested about 1:30 a.m. Nov. 10 by an officer who checked out a car parked under the Day Road Bridge over the Erie Canal in the Town of Lockport and seized more than two ounces of meth oil and materials and equipment to make more of the drug.
