Gloversville man facing six years in state prison

JOHNSTOWN — A Gloversville man faces up to six years in state prison on burglary and stolen property convictions.

Malik M. Hyde, 20, of 34 E. Eighth Ave., pleaded guilty Nov. 17 in Fulton County Court before Judge Polly A. Hoye to third-degree burglary and fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, as part of a plea arrangement.

Sentencing was adjourned until a later date, but he is expected to receive two to six years in state prison.

He faced arrest warrants on charges of second-degree burglary, third-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief and third-degree criminal mischief by Gloversville police on July 8 at 3:45 p.m.

The arrest warrants for Hyde stem from several burglary investigations related to incidents that occurred in the city on Feb. 26 and May 20. Hyde was located by police on Spring Street.

In another Fulton County Court case, Alisha Hogan, 29, of 3741 Route 29, Johnstown, pleaded guilty Nov. 17 before Hoye to third-degree burglary and unlawful fleeing from police officers.

Sentencing was delayed, but she is slated to receive one to three years in state prison, as part of a plea arrangement,

Hogan was arrested July 9 by Johnstown police after fleeing authorities,

The defendant was initially charged with: Tampering with physical evidence and first-class unlawful imprisonment, both felonies; third-degree unlawfully fleeing police in a motor vehicle, second-degree obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest, all misdemeanors; multiple state Vehicle and Traffic Law violations; and charged on a probation warrant.

Police said that officers from the Patrol Division observed a motor vehicle operated by Hogan failing to stop for the intersection of Fisher and Townsend avenues. The vehicle then ran a solid red light at North Comrie and Townsend avenues. When officers attempted to initiate a traffic stop on the vehicle, the driver accelerated and fled, police said. A vehicle pursuit began north on Bloomingdale Avenue, where the vehicle again ran a stop sign and began moving north on Route30A. Police said the vehicle continued north on Route 30A, committing multiple traffic offenses and then turned east on to County Highway 349.

Eventually, Hogan was apprehended a foot chase.
