Anthony Cross
TOWN OF LOCKPORT — Niagara County Sheriff's deputies charged a 25-year-old city man with possession of a hypodermic instrument following an armed robbery in the City of Lockport early this morning.

According to a report filed by NCSO, a Plank Road man called police and said he was following a vehicle whose occupants "had committed a robbery against him while he was attempting to purchase heroin from the driver."

Patrol caught up with the the complainant's vehicle in the parking lot of Tops on South Transit Road. Lockport Police arrived on scene at the same time. The occupants of the vehicle were separated and a search was conducted in which patrol located a syringe in the middle console in the front seat of the vehicle.

The vehicle's owner, Anthony F. Cross, 25, 57 Bright St., told patrol that he was a card carrying member of the needle exchange program but could not produce a card, according the report. Patrol asked him if he had any more needles in the car, to which he stated that he might have some in a duffel bag which was in his trunk. A search of the trunk revealed an additional 8 syringes and 1 spoon which had black residue on its surface.

Cross was placed under arrest for possession of a hypodermic instrument. The vehicle's two passengers were released without further incident, including the original complainant. Patrol secured the evidence in sharp containers inside an evidence bag and placed it in locker number eleven at the Niagara County Sheriff's Office. A request has been made to the Niagara County Forensic Laboratory to test the needles and spoon for drug content. Cross was held at the Niagara County Jail in lieu of $250 bail and is set to appear in the Town of Lockport Court on Thursday. CROSS' vehicle was towed from the scene by Harrington's.

The robbery complaint is being handled by the Lockport Police Department. The arrest reports were not yet available at the time of this story's posting.
