Dino Callara

ALBION – A Medina resident was sentenced to 3 years in state prison during Orleans County Court this morning.

Dino Callara, 50, of Slade Road was arrested in February for criminal sale of a firearm in the third degree following an investigation by the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office.

Callara is a two-time convicted felon who allegedly possessed and sold a firearm in November 2017.

Callara was also arrested on a separate charge of grand larceny in the 4th degree after he allegedly was hired to install a transmission in the victim’s vehicle in October 2017. Without the victim’s consent, he sold the vehicle for scrap metal at Dunn Salvage in Niagara County.

As part of a plea deal, the larceny charge was dismissed but Callara admitted to criminal possession of a weapon.

He also has to pay the larceny victim $3,800 in restitution.
