LOCKPORT, NY-- A Lockport man has avoided jail time for robbing the Eastern Niagara Hospital to steal drugs.

Adam Kibler, 24, instead got a sentence of five-years probation Monday from Niagara County Judge Matthew Murphy, and he'll have to write a letter of apology to the hospital.

Kibler used two fake guns and a fake bomb in the robbery in May of last year that forced people nearby to shelter in place.

He's spent the last few months in drug rehab.
