TOWN OF LOCKPORT — After charging a man with theft for stealing a wallet from a female shopper at Tops on South Transit Road, the Niagara County Sheriff's Office is looking for anyone else who may have recently been the victim of a theft while shopping in the South Lockport area.

Because it is an ongoing investigation, NCSO didn't release the suspect's name, charged Tuesday with fourth-degree grand larceny, petit larceny, second-degree impersonation and two counts of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.

The Sheriff's Office says deputies were called to Tops on Tuesday for the report of a suspicious male. When they found him, he had a pink flowered wallet in his back pocket. The suspect initially denied having the wallet and then claimed he found it on the floor. He also provided deputies with a false identity when first interviewed.

The wallet and its contents belonged to a female victim who was shopping in the store at the time. The victim denied ever dropping the wallet and told deputies it was, in fact, stolen from her purse while she was shopping.

The suspect was subsequently charged and arraigned in Lockport Town Court and is now being held without bail at the Niagara County Jail.

Anyone who has been a victim of a similar theft and hasn't yet reported the incident or anyone with additional information is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 438-3393 or Inv. Brian Schell at 438-3328.

  1. just to be on the safe side, this is what I usually do. Lock my purse and wallet in my car, taking money, credit card, and car keys in with me (in my pockets).

  2. Let's hope it's Jedidiah and get the heroin addict, pan handler off the streets.
