WRIGHTS CORNERS — A 41-year-old Niagara Falls man is facing petit larceny charges from two Lockport-Olcott Road stores Sunday afternoon.

Gerald H. Stroud, 1819 Pine Ave., Niagara Falls, stands accused of stealing Glade air fresheners from Tops at approximately 4:30 p.m. He then reportedly stole Glade oil refills from Family Dollar at 4:34 p.m.

According to NCSO, Stroud entered Family Dollar and asked where the Glade Oil Refills were located for air fresheners. Several minutes later, he quickly exited the store and the sensor alarm was activated. The employees yelled to him to stop, but he continued walking out of the store and got into the back seat of a car which then left.

A short time later, patrol was informed that the Town of Niagara Police Department stopped the vehicle involved in the larceny and the male in the back seat matches the description of the suspect provided. The items were also found in the car.

NCSO states that Stroud confessed to stealing the items from Family Dollar and Tops. The merchandise was returned to its appropriate stores. Stroud was held in the Niagara County Jail, in lieu of $500 bail. He is to appear in the Town of Newfane Court to be arraigned on the charge of Petit Larceny.

Stroud is also on New York State Parole for Robbery in the Second Degree. Patrol will notify his parole officer.
