A man in search of free beer and pizza Thursday night landed in jail on a robbery charge, Officer Bryan Dalporto said.

The robbery occurred at 6 p.m. in the Wilson Farms store at 402 Niagara St. Police said Kavanaugh fled with beer, a frozen pizza and cheese. Police said store employees chased Kavanaugh down an alley but abandoned the chase when the suspect told them he had a knife. Police said he was arrested in the 700 block of Pine Avenue.
