Niagara Falls man to receive drug treatment after pleading guilty to robbery

LOCKPORT - A Niagara Falls man who was charged with two robberies pleaded guilty Tuesday and was admitted to a court-supervised drug treatment program.

Thomas M. Flatt, 56, of Eighth Street, risks a prison term of as long as four years if he fails in the judicial diversion program, Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon warned him.

Flatt pleaded guilty to fourth-degree grand larceny. He was charged with robbing a cashier at Tops Market on Portage Road in the Falls on March 29 and with robbing a Citizens Bank branch located in the same supermarket April 9.

Sheldon ordered Flatt to stay out of that Tops store as a condition of his release into the treatment program.
