WATERTOWN — A city man has been named in a grand jury indictment unsealed Wednesday in Jefferson County Court alleging that he participated in a burglary in which firearms were stolen.
Cody A. Jones, 25, is charged with single counts of second-degree burglary and fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and two counts of fourth-degree grand larceny.
It is alleged that in February he entered the town of LeRay residence of James Olson with the intent to commit a crime and, while aided and abetted by another, stole firearms and a television with a total value of more than $1,000. Michael S. Hill, 34, Watertown, was indicted in August on seven counts in connection with the alleged incident.
Mr. Jones pleaded not guilty to the charges at arraignment and was sent to the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building on $20,000 bail. He also has a third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance charge pending in County Court. In that instance, it is alleged that on March 25 he possessed heroin with the intent to sell the drug in Watertown.

Jason C. Roshia, 35, Watertown, pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal contempt. He admitted that he violated a Family Court order of protection held by Sandra M. Labarge by striking her on the head July 20 in Watertown. He is expected to be sentenced Nov. 17 to no worse than six months’ time served at the PSB and five years’ probation.

Lockiby, 33, Liverpool, was sentenced to an unspecified amount of time served at the PSB and three years’ probation after pleading guilty July 28 to driving while ability impaired by drugs, fifth-degree criminal possession of marijuana and second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.
