LOCKPORT – Raymond M. Burley pleaded guilty Thursday to making methamphetamine – again.

Burley, 27, whose last known address was on Livingston Avenue, Niagara Falls, admitted to a meth felony for the second time in less than three years. This time it was third-degree unlawful manufacture, and he was set for sentencing Sept. 11 by Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III. The maximum sentence is four years behind bars.

Burley was arrested Oct. 7 on Spalding Street in Lockport, where police found meth-making materials and equipment in his car.

He and another man were arrested in similar circumstances in October 2011 in the Town of Lockport. Burley served 18 months in prison for that, and the co-defendant, Joshua B. Hoefer of Burt, served a year.
