Buffalo teen pleads guilty in Falls robbery spree

LOCKPORT – A Buffalo man pleaded guilty Friday in State Supreme Court to two counts of second-degree robbery, wrapping up an 18-count indictment that accused him of four robberies in a four-day period in Niagara Falls in March.

Edgar J. Mills, 18, of Purdy Street, is to be sentenced Aug. 14 by Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. on two counts of second-degree robbery.

Mills was charged with beating and robbing a woman on March 12 on 12th Street, as she was walking home from Seneca Niagara Casino; snatching a woman’s purse and knocking her against a wall the same night in the Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center parking ramp; trying to rob a man March 14, an attack interrupted when a car drove past; and breaking a deaf woman’s arm while stealing her purse March 15.

Mills faces a maximum of 14 years in prison on the two counts.
