Buffalo man imprisoned in designer jean theft from Saks

LOCKPORT – A 57-year-old Buffalo man with a long criminal record was sentenced Friday to one to three years in state prison for taking part in the Aug. 13 theft of more than $1,000 worth of expensive designer jeans from the Saks Off 5th store in the Fashion Outlets, Town of Niagara.

Derrick M. Nailor of Simon Street, who pleaded guilty to fourth-degree grand larceny, told Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III, “I don’t know how long this is going to take, but this is the last ride. I’m too old and too tired.”

Murphy replied, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. This shoplifting thing is not working out. You keep getting caught.”

Nailor was one of four people who emptied a rack of jeans into garbage bags and ran for the exits. The only other person caught, an 18-year-old Buffalo woman, was granted youthful offender status March 10 and placed on three years’ probation.
