MASSENA - A Massena man will be sentenced in August after admitting he stole a television from the Massena Walmart a year ago in a plea bargain agreement that satisfied a host of other charges pending against him in village court.

Alan M. Green, 22, pleaded guilty to a solo count of petit larceny. Massena Village Justice Eric J. Gustafson directed the probation department to conduct a pre-sentence investigation and scheduled sentencing for Aug. 19.

He had been charged with petit larceny on June 7, 2013 after he walked out of the Massena Walmart without paying for a 32-inch LED TV.

The plea bargain satisfied a disorderly conduct charge stemming from an incident at 12:50 a.m. Oct. 31 after police responded to a report of a large fight on the front lawn at 276 Main St. Police said they observed Green was part of the fray and then saw him run back to a vehicle carrying a metal socket wrench. They said Green failed to comply with requests to stop screaming obscenities and was charged with the violation.

It also satisfied a second petit larceny count stemming from an incident on Nov. 13, 2013 when he allegedly stole $250 from Robert Wilson Jr., a disorderly conduct charge from Aug. 19, 2012 when he was allegedly involved in an altercation in a parking lot behind the Delmar Tavern and a Dec. 5, 2012 aggravated harassment count alleging he had called Amanda Castle and threatened to cut her throat and beat her with a hammer because she was reportedly texting his cousin.

Green had recently turned himself in on warrants issued after he had failed to appear in court on several charges pending in local courts.

In other recent court action before Judge Gustafson:

• Brittany A. Phillips, 20, of 38 Grove St., Massena, was granted an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal after completing 20 hours of community service and making restitution of $31.35.

She had been charged with petit larceny after police responded to a shoplifting complaint Feb. 20 at the Massena Walmart. She reportedly walked past the store’s last point of sale without paying for earbuds and three items from the cosmetic aisle.

• Deborah Hutchins, 26, of 8516 state Route 56, Norfolk, was granted an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal after completing 40 hours of community service.

Village police had charged Hutchins with sixth-degree conspiracy on Dec. 24 after she allegedly worked with Tammee Rood to shoplift $283.30 worth of merchandise from the Massena Walmart. Rood allegedly left the store without paying for various merchandise ranging from slippers to knives and a tool set.

• Rachel L. Oakes, 24, of 189 Wade Lafrance Road, Snye, Que., was fined $75 and a $125 surcharge after a petit larceny count was reduced to disorderly conduct.

She had been charged with petit larceny at 3:50 p.m. Sept. 30 after police responded to a shoplifting complaint at Walmart. She reportedly walked past the last point of sale at the store without paying for $545.01 worth of merchandise, including men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, toiletries and groceries.

• John T. Snyder, 55, of 35 Rockway St., Massena, was ordered to pay a $125 surcharge and a $50 fee to submit a sample of his DNA to the state database.

He had been charged with petit larceny after village police responded to a shoplifting complaint Oct. 16 at the Massena Walmart. He reportedly walked past the store’s last point of sale without paying for three DVDs. The merchandise was valued at $55.88.
