Prison term expected for Falls robbery spree

LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls man, accused by police of four armed store robberies during November, pleaded guilty Thursday to two felonies to wrap up the cases.

Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon scheduled sentencing May 5 for Devonte C. Faultersack, 19, who didn’t wait to be indicted before admitting to two counts of attempted second-degree robbery. Sheldon committed to a concurrent sentence, limiting the teenager’s prison time to seven years instead of a possible 14-year maximum.

When Falls police arrested Faultersack Dec. 11, they accused him of robbing Chu’s Restaurant on Main Street on Nov. 9; 7-Eleven stores on Niagara Street and Buffalo Avenue on Nov. 15; and the Indian General Store on Pine Avenue on Nov. 29.
