LIVINGSTON COUNTY — A Rochester man, arrested for stealing merchandise from the Geneseo Wal-Mart, has pleaded guilty to 4th Degree Grand Larceny for his role in the crime.
Juwan Robertson, 27, was arrested on February 6th after he, and two other men, were found fleeing the store. According to DA Greg McCaffrey, the three men entered the store around midnight and left with the stolen merchandise shortly thereafter. Although employees believed the men had left the store with stolen goods, they were not apprehended at this time due to Wal-Mart’s “No Chase” policy. However, when the trio decided to re-enter the store later that night, they were recognized and the police were called to the scene.
Robertson stated in court that he used a “Tote” to place small electronics, electric toothbrushes, shavers, baby formula and other expensive merchandise in as he strolled around the store.
The defendant appeared in front of Judge Robert B. Wiggins, with his attorney, Marcea Clark Tetamore, and waived his right to a grand jury indictment, in exchange for a lesser sentence.
Robertson is scheduled to appear on May 7th for sentencing. He is also facing similar charges in Monroe County, and is scheduled to be sentenced there on May 10th.
