Massena man with fake pistol granted CD on menacing count


MASSENA - A Massena man charged with having an imitation pistol in his hand when he was pushing a woman off his property has been ordered to pay a surcharge and placed under a one-year conditional discharge.

Massena Town Justice Gerald P. Sharlow ordered Dahtez D. Jones, 27, of 14 County Route 42A, Massena, to pay a $260 surcharge and abide by the terms of an order of protection that direct him to have no contact with Alisha A. Bormann for his second-degree attempted menacing conviction.

Massena-based state police charged Jones with second-degree menacing and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon with intent to use following an incident that reportedly took place in mid-October at his residence.

Jones reportedly had an imitation pistol, a Crossman 1088 .177 CO2 pistol, in his left hand while he pushed Alisha M. Bormann during an incident at his residence.

Ms. Bormann said was at a friend’s home when Jones and Erin Abelard started texting her that Steven Colburn was drunk, and they were going to send him home in a cab.

Ms. Bormann told troopers she and her friend, Mace Closs, decided to go to Jones’ County Route 42A residence to check on Mr. Colburn and make sure he was okay.

“Dahtez kept going in and out of the house and wouldn’t stand still. The last time Dahtez went in he came out and grabbed what looked to be a black handgun and started yelling profanity. Dahtez kept pushing me backwards, trying to get me off his property. The entire time he was pushing me he had a black handgun in his left hand,” Ms. Bormann told troopers.

In other recent court action before Judge Sharlow:

■ Casey McMillan, 24, of Potsdam, also listing a Winterhaven, Fla., address, was sentenced to time served - 40 days - for an attempted petit larceny conviction. He was also placed under a one-year conditional discharge and ordered to make restitution of $309.

He had picked up on an arrest warrant and charged with petit larceny stemming from an investigation into an incident reported at 8:34 p.m. Aug. 30. He reportedly stole a Nook Tablet, valued at $199, and $110 in cash from Sasha A. Block’s purse.
