Police say a man who might be living in the Utica or Herkimer area is wanted by authorities after they say he failed to appear for his sentencing in regards to two convictions.

29-year-Thomas J. Wall, who according to Oneida County Sheriff's Investigator Sahid Karcic, might be living in the Utica or Herkimer area, didn't show for sentencing on two convictions earlier in July. Wall is wanted on two bench warrants issued by Judge R. L. Bauer in Oneida County Court, Karcic said.

The first warrant is related to charges of Burglary 2nd (Felony), Petit Larceny (Misdemeanor), and the second warrant involves a charge of Grand Larceny 4th (Felony). In both cases, Karcic says that Wall has also failed to cooperate with Probation in regards to the pre-sentence investigation.
