Roommate rips off suspect who got arrested

A City of Tonawanda man was arrested Saturday for stealing $460 from his roommate’s wallet – after his roommate had been arrested by city police on sexual abuse charges.

Thomas M. Danwin, 31, of Scott Street, was charged with petit larceny around 4 a.m. after police learned he sneaked into Steven Huber’s apartment, where Danwin had been living temporarily, and took the money, police said.

Huber had been arrested earlier Saturday morning on the unrelated abuse charges, and officers had already secured the apartment, but Danwin had a way to get in.

Danwin was locked up and being held for court, but was taken to DeGraff Memorial Hospital for treatment after he complained of chest pains while in lockup.
