Cheektowaga man arrested for Lancaster armed robbery

Frank Schupp, 46, was taken into custody by Town of Lancaster police at his Harmony Lane home in Cheektowaga a short time after he allegedly staged an armed robbery at the Tops Express convenience store at 6363 Transit Road at 6:45 p.m. Saturday.

Based on information provided by witnesses and the license plate number of the car used by the robber – who wore pantyhose over his head and flashed a knife – Lancaster police quickly tracked down and arrested Schupp on first-degree robbery, menacing and stolen property counts.

Lancaster police said Schupp also admitted that he recently robbed a Depew liquor store. Schupp remained in custody at the Erie County Holding Center Sunday pending further Lancaster Town Court proceedings.
