A man tries to leave the store with over $100 worth of steaks in his coat

LOCKPORT — A Lockport man who tried to leave a supermarket with six packages of steaks was charged with robbery after he allegedly fought with a store manager, knocking him down, Tuesday at a Tops Supermarket on South Transit Road.

Stanley D. Wilson, 55, of Genesee Street was found carrying packages of T-bone and porterhouse steaks in his coat valued at $128. He was arrested and charged by Niagara County sheriff’s deputies with third-degree robbery and petit larceny.

Wilson was arraigned in Town of Lockport Court and held in Niagara County Jail without bail because of four previous felony convictions. A return court date was set for Friday.
