Buffalo man admits to burglary at Falls wireless phone store

LOCKPORT – One of two Buffalo men who broke into the Universal Wireless store in Niagara Falls 16 months ago pleaded guilty Friday in Niagara County Court.

Marcus T. Davis, 27, of Dorris Avenue, admitted to a reduced charge of attempted third-degree burglary and could go to prison for as long as four years when he is sentenced Aug. 6 by County Judge Sara Sheldon.

Last week, co-defendant Anthony W. Flood, 26, of Alma Avenue, pleaded guilty to petit larceny; he is to be sentenced July 6.

Assistant District Attorney Joel M. Grundy said the men each must pay half of a restitution tab of $68,820: $1,000 to the store owner to cover an insurance deductible and the rest to Liberty Mutual Insurance.

Davis said he was addicted to drugs at the time of crime, Jan. 22, 2014.
