Man charged with stealing from relative

Tonawanda News — A Buffalo man is accused of stealing items from the Lockport home of a relative.

New York State Police are charging Steven J. Mouery, 40, of Gallatin Street, with fourth-degree grand larceny, a class E felony.

Troopers were called to the home on Feb. 9 and were reportedly told money, video games, jewelry and a cell phone were taken. The stolen items totaled over $1,000.

The homeowner suspected a relative may have been involved who had access to the residence at the time of the theft. That suspicion was confirmed by a State Police investigation, as Mouery reportedly stole the items and sold them in Buffalo.

He was charged and arraigned Thursday in Lockport Town Court. Mouery was remanded to the Niagara County Jail on $1,000 bail or $2,000 secured bond and is scheduled to return Feb. 20 to Lockport Town Court.
