Three Brooklyn residents apparently thought Batavia would be a good place to try and pass some fraudulent credit cards, but alert employees at local stores tripped them up and all three are now in custody.

The Sheriff's Office was first alerted to suspicious activity by an employee of Rite-Aid, who reported two men were attempting to buy items using several different credit cards.

Their descriptions were given to patrols and dispatchers alerted other area stores.

A short time later, a loss prevention officer at Walmart reported the men were at the store by the Subway concession. 

Deputies responded and spoke with the subjects and a third companion was located.

All three subjects were allegedly found in possession of fraudulent credit and debit cards.

Investigators believe the suspects cloned cards with other people's information and then tried to use the fake cards to purchase authentic gift cards for themselves.

Arrested were: 

  • Monta H. Little, 20, of Bushwick Street, Brooklyn, charged with 28 counts of criminal possessioni of a forged instrument 2nd. Little allegedly held 27 fradulent credit and debit cards and one fradulent New Jerese driver's license.
  • Robert T. Assing Jr., 20, of Humbolt Street, Brooklyn, charged with seven counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument for allegedly possessing seven fradulent credit and debit cards.
  • Nelson Grant Jr., 26, of Seigel Street, Brooklyn, charged with five counts of possession of a forged instrument, 2nd, for allegedly possessing five fradulent credit and debit cards.

The three suspects were arraigned in Town of Batavia Court and ordered held on $10,000 bail each.

The investigation was conducted by Deputy Joseph Corona, Deputy Chris Erion and K-9 Destro, Deputy Joseph Graff, Investigator Roger Stone, Sgt. Ron Meides, along with Trooper Eric Daigler and Trooper Eggert. An agent of the Secret Service also assisted in the investigation.

When Kesean Shannon was charged with rape in early February, police said he may have victimized other women.

Today, Batavia PD announced four more rape counts against the 22-year-old Batavia resident.

Shannon is accused of having sexual intercourse with a woman who was unable to consent on four occasions in June. 

He was arraigned yesterday on four counts of rape in the first degree, police said.

He was already being held in the Genesee County Jail on three counts of first-degree sexual abuse, two counts of third-degree sexual abuse, and one count of sexual misconduct.

Those charges were the result of two separate investigations into allegations that Shannon engaged in sex crimes against two girls, age 15 and 16, and with a victim who is 30 years old.

The alleged abuse occurred in 2012 and 2013.

Shannon is due back in City Court for further proceedings April 14.

The investigation is being led by Det. Kevin Czora. He can be contacted at BPD headquarters, Batavia PD, at (585) 345-6350.

Suzanne Corona

With the exception of a petit larceny charged a year ago, Suzanne Corona has pretty much been able to keep her name out of the news since 2011.

The 45-year-old Osterhout Avenue resident became an international sensation in June 2010 when he was caught in a sexually compromised situation on a picnic table in Farrall Park.

The illicit tryst for the married woman led to a rare criminal charge of adultery, which sparked news headlines in tabloids from New York to London to Australia. 

Over the next year, her exploits continued to make news, especially in Western New York, but then she faded from view.

Her arrest by the Local Drug Task Force on Tuesday has her facing her most serious criminal charges yet.

Corona is accused of selling suboxone to an agent of the task force.

She is charged with fourth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

The charges are the fist time she faces a possible felony conviction.

Corona was jailed pending a bail review today.

A woman who once represented herself as an owner of a group of infamous smoke shops involved in the sale of bath salts and synthetic marijuana entered a guilty plea yesterday to a federal charge in connection with the drug sales.

Amber Snover, 24, faces up to four years in prison, a $250,000 fine or both after pleading guilty in U.S. District Court to using a communication facility to facilitate a controlled substance.

The chain of smoke shops was known as the 420 Emporium, and on social media, Snover claimed to be the owner of locations in Brockport, Fulton, Henrietta and Syracuse, though never claimed ownership of the Batavia location that was at 400 Ellicott St.

When bath salts were a hot issue in Batavia in 2012, The Batavian contacted Snover and she denied owning any of the stores before hanging up on a reporter.

She later called Greece police and tried to have the reporter arrested.

Public records uncovered later indicated Charles Fitzgerald owned the first four locations and Joshua Denise owned the Batavia location.

Fitzgerald and Snover were apparently living together at 21 West Hill Estates, Greece. Their home was raided on the same day, July 25, 2014, as the Batavia location as part of a nationwide DEA crackdown on synthetic drug manufacturing, sales and distribution

Authorities recovered more than $770,000 in cash at the Greece residence.

Snover's conviction covers a federal contention that the woman used a phone to order various synthetic controlled substance analogues for the store in Batavia.

She will be sentenced June 23.

The 420 Emporium employees arrested in the raids have entered guilty pleas to various charges and await sentencing.

Fitzgerald entered a guilty plea in January to possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and faces a possible maximum federal prison term of 30 years. He will be sentenced April 15.
