Couple charged with crimes at Grand Island resort

A Grand Island man and Buffalo woman were arrested Tuesday on burglary and other charges at Byblos Niagara Resort & Spa on Whitehaven Road, Grand Island, according to the Erie County Sheriff’s Office.

Gregory Swan, 44, and Alicia Prine, 33, were charged after resort staffers alerted authorities that the two neglected to pay for their room and also stole a flat-screen TV, deputies said.

Prine also was charged with false personation, possession of a hypodermic instrument, petit larceny and failure to pay for hotel services. Swan was charged with failure to pay for hotel services and petit larceny.

Undersheriff Mark Wipperman Friday said an investigation is continuing.
