Lockport man charged with Bon Ton robbery

LOCKPORT – A Lockport man, already indictment for allegedly dealing painkillers, was hit with a fresh indictment Friday, accusing him of a robbery at the Lockport Bon Ton store last year.

David M. Soulvie, 35, of Niagara Street, pleaded not guilty to third-degree robbery, petit larceny and second-degree harassment. Assistant District Attorney John P. Granchelli said Soulvie allegedly tried to shoplift some merchandise at the South Transit Road store Sept. 13 and had a physical confrontation with a security guard, elevating the matter to a felony robbery.

On May 28, Soulvie denied two counts each of third-degree criminal sale and possession of a controlled substance. He allegedly sold Fentanyl patches Dec. 9 and oxycodone pills three days later.

County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas set bail on both indictments at $5,000 each.
