Third suspect charged in alleged theft of copper wire from Dolomite

posted by Howard B. Owens in crime, Le Roy.

A third suspect has been accused of stealing copper wire from Dolomite's Gulf Road facility.

Joseph Paul Pratt, 18, of Church Street, Le Roy, has been charged with burglary, 3rd, criminal mischief, 2nd, and grand larceny, 3rd, all felonies.

Earlier this week, Michael A. Nicometo 28, 45 North St., Le Roy, and Jonathan D. Smeak, 22, of State Street Road, Batavia, were arrested on similar charges.

The arrests stem from an investigation by Deputy Joseph Graff and Deputy John Duyssen into a report of large amounts of copper wire disappearing from the Dolomite facility.

The thefts caused $32,000 in damage to Dolomite's electrical system.

Pratt, who is already being held on other charges, was arraigned in Town of Batavia Court and returned to the Genesee County Jail.

The investigation is ongoing, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Nicometo is also a suspect in a series of thefts of live electrical wire from industrial facilities in Le Roy.
