Man charged with Falls crime spree takes plea deal

LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls man pleaded guilty to two felonies Friday, settling a case in which he was accused of eight different crimes in September and October.

Ahmed H. McCray, 35, of Niagara Avenue, admitted to third-degree burglary and fourth-degree grand larceny and was set for sentencing June 28 by Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas, who said she will give McCray no more than seven years in prison. Also, McCray agreed to a lifetime ban from both stores he stole from.

McCray admitted entering the office of the Wilson Farms store at 1500 Main St. on Oct. 7 and stealing some cash, and also admitted stealing more than $1,000 worth of underwear in three thefts at the Family Dollar store, 1628 Main St., between Oct. 6 and 13. McCray stuffed the clothing into a duffel bag he concealed in his pants, Assistant District Attorney Joseph A. Scalzo said.
