Tonawanda handyman gets 7 years for stealing from customers | Crime News
A craftsman from the city of Tonawanda, who hunted down several of his customers last summer, was sentenced to seven years in prison for burglary.
Anthony R. Busch, 40, admitted breaking into the home of an elderly Orchard Park couple with an accomplice and taking a woman’s purse, according to Erie County District Attorney John J. Flynn.
Busch also admitted stealing credit cards, tools, jewelry, and Buffalo Bills memorabilia from a residence in West Seneca while at work, and stealing a large commercial trailer from a freight company in Lancaster City, worth more than adverts $ 50,000 included towing equipment.
Busch pleaded guilty to second- and third-degree burglary and grand third-degree theft. He also had to sign a confession in favor of the trucking business. According to Flynn, he was convicted as a second offender Tuesday by Erie County Court Judge Susan Eagan.
Flynn said the investigation into Busch’s accomplices in the Orchard Park crime was still ongoing.
