LOCKPORT – Tyrell J. Jordan, 20, of 18th Street, Niagara Falls, pleaded guilty Thursday to third-degree robbery in connection with the June 20 theft of money from a man in the 1600 block of Cleveland Avenue.

Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III said he will sentence Jordan concurrently March 13 for that charge and for attempted second-degree burglary in connection with an Oct. 23, 2012, break-in at a home on Seneca Avenue in the Falls. That means Jordan will receive no more than seven years behind bars.

Jordan, who also has an attempted second-degree burglary conviction dating from 2011, was apparently trying to make a drug deal in a car with the robbery victim, according to the testimony of co-defendant David Anthony when he pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree robbery on Nov. 26.

Anthony, 21, of Ontario Avenue, will be given no more than four years in prison for his role in the holdup.
