Man pleads guilty in bizarre smoke shop robbery
BATAVIA — A Fulton County man Tuesday admitted robbing a Tonawanda Indian Reservation smoke shop at gunpoint and now faces a certain state prison term.
Jeremy J. Reynolds, 33, who has an extensive felony criminal history in at least two states, appeared in Genesee County Court and waived his right to a grand jury proceeding.
He pleaded guilty as charged to attempted second-degree robbery, admitting that he used a gun in an attempt to rob Smoke Rings on Shanks Road on May 20. District Attorney Lawrence Friedman said the deal comes with the promise of a sentence of no more than five years in state prison.
