Cough syrup theft in Cheektowaga leads to jail

The theft of cough syrup from a Cheektowaga store earlier this month has resulted in a six-month jail sentence for a Buffalo resident.

David L. Washington, 64, pleaded guilty to a petit larceny charge stemming from the Jan. 6 theft from a Family Dollar store on Genesee Street. Washington, who police said has an extensive criminal history, was sentenced Wednesday by Cheektowaga Town Justice Paul Piotrowski.
