Armed men rob Sanborn convenience store

The Niagara County Sheriff's Office is investigating an early Friday morning armed robbery at a Saunders Settlement Road convenience store.

A clerk said two men entered the store a little after 3 a.m., one of them displaying a handgun. The clerk turned over an undetermined amount of cash and the two men fled.

Deputies, along with Lewiston and state police, responded immediately and set up a perimeter but were unable to locate the men.

The sheriff's Criminal Bureau is investigating.

It was the second armed robbery of the store this week.

A Niagara County Sheriff's deputy responding to an armed robbery there Wednesday morning was able to quickly find the suspect.

A sheriff's deputy said he was on patrol on Shawnee Road about 2 a.m. when he received a call  about the robbery — a clerk said a man wielding a knife had made off with $200. 

The suspect, a Lockport man, was stopped while driving on Lockport Road, identified by the clerk and charged.

No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
