Tyler Malik, the Arcade man who smashed Wyoming County Sheriff's Patrol Car, pleads guilty to burglaries
An Arcade man who was already in prison for a series of crimes when he was indicted on burglary charges pleaded guilty Monday in Wyoming County Court, a month before this trial was to begin.
Tyler J. Malik, 29, pleaded guilty to third-degree burglary in satisfaction of an indictment charging him with two counts of second-degree burglary. Malik burglarized two houses in Java in October and November 2019. Malik at the time was free awaiting sentencing for numerous crimes he committed earlier in the year.
In July 2019, Malik crashed into the rear of a three-day old Wyoming sheriff’s patrol car, destroying the car and injuring a deputy. He was charged with DWI and reckless endangerment.
On Oct. 15, Malik was stopped while driving in Pike and was found to be high on drugs and in possession of crystal meth and marijuana. It was later determined that Malik possessed enough drugs to warrant a felony drug charge.
Investigators attempted to arrest him in late November. Malik ran and then fought with deputies, injuring two during the fight. He also was found with meth, four meth pipes, hydrocodone, alprazolam, clonazepam, buprenorphine and adderall, and a digital scale with white powder on it.
Malik, a month later, pleaded guilty to felony attempted assault and driving while impaired by drugs. He was sentenced in January to two to four years in state prison and is serving his sentence at Cape Vincent Correctional Facility. He was released in July after serving seven months.
