Sterling L. Ruffin
TOWN OF LOCKPORT — A month-long joint investigation involving the New York State Police, Genesee, Orleans and Monroe County Sheriff Departments and Rochester PD resulted in the arrest of 19-year-old Sterling L. Ruffin of Rochester on charges of third-degree grand larcey.

The investigation started Christmas Eve when New York State Police were called to Walmart on South Transit Road for a shoplifting report. Store security said that two black males had placed several items into a shopping cart and then left the store without paying for the items. A store employee attempted to stop the males who then ran into the parking lot and fled in a vehicle, leaving the shopping cart and items — including miscellaneous electronic video games consoles and clothing valued over $3,000 — behind. The incident was recorded by surveillance video.

During the investigation it was discovered that several other agencies had similar investigations underway. The surveillance video was reviewed by other agencies and Ruffin was able to be identified.

Ruffin, who was incarcerated in the Monroe County Jail on unrelated charges was transported to SP Lockport and charged with one count of third-degree grand larceny 3rd. He was processed and arraigned in the Town of Lockport Court, then remanded to Niagara County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond.
