A 24-year-old man who was already busted for petty larceny earlier this year was taken into custody again on Monday for stealing from Lowe’s, according to law enforcement officials.
Kevin L. Lamb, of West Bloomfield Street, stole two air compressors from Lowe’s on Erie Boulevard West at about 12:30 p.m. Monday, police stated. Lamb fled the scene in a vehicle and was pulled over a short time later by officers Michael J. Sweezey and Derek T. Utter.
Lamb is charged with one count of petty larceny, a misdemeanor, police said. He was arraigned in City Court on Monday and was sent to county jail in lieu of bail. He is scheduled to reappear in court on Dec. 13.
Police said Lamb was also wanted on an open parole warrant for a previous violation of parole.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, Lamb was taken into custody for stealing from Walmart on Rome-Taberg Road on Jan. 26. He was also charged, at that time, with a parole violation.
According to state records, Lamb was released on parole from state prison on Nov. 1, 2016, after serving nearly two years on a charge of possession of stolen property.
