Man trying to steal toy from Walmart arrested

NIAGARA FALLS – A 24th Street man faces a petit larceny charge after he was accused of trying to steal an $80 toy from Walmart on Military Road.

Jose A. Irizarry, 29, was confronted before he exited the store and dropped the item. He fled in a red Ford Explorer headed down Military just before 8 p.m. Sunday, according to a police report.

A vehicle matching that description was stopped in a nearby shopping plaza, and Irizarry was found to be a passenger inside it. He was issued an appearance ticket for a Jan. 7 City Court appearance.
