Police seek two teens in Wilson Farms robbery

NIAGARA FALLS -- Detectives Friday were looking for two teenagers in connection with the armed robbery of the Wilson Farms store at 1500 Main St. at 10:15 p.m. Thursday.

An employee told police that two teenagers wearing dark clothing robbed the store and one was armed with a shotgun. Police said the armed bandit pushed the employee to the cash register and forced her to give him all the money. The same bandit attempted to enter a locked office where another employee was, but was unsuccessful, police added.

The robbers fled when they learned police were summoned, and the armed bandit crashed into a locked door, shattering the glass and causing $250 in damage, police said.

Police searched a home on South Avenue, where they found a jacket and weapon linked to the holdup, but witnesses could not identify the suspect, who was released.

As a result of the search, police charged Cortez D. Davis, 17, of South Avenue with unlawful possession of marijuana.
