Returning items to take items gets you arrested

On February 1, 2024, the Bureau of Criminal Investigation out of SP Lockport arrested Milton J. Jeffries, 57 of Lockport, NY for Burglary 3rd degree, Grand Larceny 4th degree, Obstruction, and Trespassing.

On January 25, 2024, the Bureau of Criminal Investigation received a complaint from Home Depot in the town of Lockport for a larceny complaint. The investigation determined from October 2023 to January 2024, Jeffries would enter Home Depot and purchase items on his Home Depot credit card, then leave the store with the items. Jeffries would then return on a later date empty-handed and take items off the shelf, then return items at the return counter for credit on his credit card. Jeffries returned items on 22 occasions fraudulently for a total of $1940.73.  Jeffries denied who he was, claiming Jeffries was his brother until Investigators placed him under arrest.

Jeffries was arrested and processed at SP Lockport and transported to Niagara County Jail for centralized arraignment.
