Joshua F. Denisco, 25, was picked up at a Tim Hortons in Wrights Corners about two hours after the Hilltop break-in, Niagara County Sheriff James R. Voutour said. He said the owners of the Hilltop found an intruder in the restaurant's kitchen about 3 a.m.

After deputies were called to the Tim Hortons to quell a reported disturbance there, they found Denisco had possession of two bottles of liquor that were reported stolen from the Hilltop, and that he matched the description of the burglar given by the owners.

Town of Lockport Justice Cheryl A. Antkowiak ordered Denisco jailed in lieu of $5,000 bail to await further court action.
