Man pleads guilty in burglary case


JOHNSTOWN — A Broadalbin man is going to state prison for up to four years — as a second felony offender — after a conviction involving ice shanty break-ins last winter.

Dylan L. Sowle, 21, of County Highway 110, pleaded guilty May 4 before Fulton County Court Judge Polly A. Hoye to one felony count of third-degree burglary, as part of a plea arrangement.

Sentencing was adjourned until a later date, but Sowle is expected to receive two to four years in state prison, as a second felony offender. An order of protection was also granted for his victim.

State police arrested Sowle on Jan. 30, charging him with third-degree burglary for an incident which occurred on Jan 29 in Broadalbin. Troopers said Sowle broke into ice shanties on the Greater Sacandaga Lake.

Sowle was also charged with third-degree burglary in December 2014. He was one of six people arrested after state police allege they broke into several campers at a Broadalbin campground. Suspects, including Sowle, were charged for incidents at the Birch Haven Campgrounds, where multiple items were stolen.

In another recent County Court case, Christopher Faboskay, 25, of Academy Street, Amsterdam, pleaded guilty Tuesday before Hoye to one count of fourth-degree grand larceny, as part of a plea arrangement.

Sentencing was delayed until a later date, but the defendant is expected to receive one year in the county jail.

Faboskay was arrested Dec. 27, 2017. Details of his case were unavailable.
