Man Faces

Contempt Charge

WESTFIELD — A Dunkirk man who police say created a dozen fake Facebook accounts over the course of three months to, among other things, harass another person was charged this week. The Westfield Police Department received word Dec. 15 that 45-year-old Mark R. Yerico was allegedly creating fake accounts on the popular social networking site using another person’s name and her personal photographs without permission. During the three-month investigation by Westfield police, it is alleged the Dunkirk man created a minimum of 12 such fake Facebook accounts to “post false, inaccurate information about the victim.” The action, according to police in a news release, was in violation of an order of protection. Yerico was served a ticket to appear in court on a second-degree criminal contempt charge.
