Police foil burglary, arrest one

A Buffalo man was arrested early Saturday morning following a reported burglary in progress at a convenience store in the 900 block of Pine Avenue.

Johnny Marks, 31, 184 Kay St., Buffalo, was charged with third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief and fourth-degree grand larceny after police arrived at the scene and a witness identified him as one of two men who entered the store and stole merchandise.

The witness told police he observed two men enter the store and leave with a bag full of merchandise. They then took the bag and placed it in the trunk of a silver vehicle parked on Ninth Street. He said both men ran when police arrived at the scene and Marks was spotted walking across Pine Avenue from the store.

Police report finding the vehicle with its trunk open containing what appeared to be a plastic container of lottery tickets.

Police were unable to apprehend the second individual, who escaped by crossing through yards, the witness said.
