SANBORN – A Lockport man evicted from his dormitory room for marijuana use was arrested Friday after allegedly breaking into a mechanical room on the roof of Niagara County Community College.

Security personnel at the Saunders Settlement Road campus said Jared G. Scheeler, 20, caused about $1,000 in damage to an air-handling compressor during the break-in, which occurred between 1 and 6 a.m. Scheeler was charged with third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief and possession of burglary tools.

Niagara County sheriff’s deputies said they found suspected marijuana on Scheeler and additional charges are possible.
