LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls man, arraigned last week on charges of stealing property from the home of his dead grandmother last year, has been indicted again, this time in connection with a burglary that allegedly occurred the day before the other thefts.
Henri J. Alfiere, 31, of no fixed address, pleaded not guilty in Niagara County Court Friday to fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, fourth-degree grand larceny and third-degree criminal mischief. The charges pertain to thefts from a home on 13th Street in the Falls on Nov. 29.
Alfiere’s co-defendant in the 13th Street case, Steven C. Lewis, 26, of Third Street, Youngstown, has pleaded guilty to second- and third-degree burglary. He will have to pay $7,500 in restitution in those cases. Lewis’ other break-in was committed on Dec. 3, 2012, on Ulrich Drive in Porter.
