MAYVILLE — A city man remains in Chautauqua County Jail following the robbery of a Falconer convenience store last week.

Andrew J. Piatz, 40, is being held on $100,000 bail on charges of petit larceny and third-degree robbery, a class D felony. The Ellicott Police Department said Piatz on Dec. 9 demanded money and threatened a clerk at a West Main Street Kwik Fill that he had a gun.

The robbery took place around 6:30 a.m. The Jamestown resident left the store with an undisclosed amount of money, but was taken into custody a short time later following a search by officers from Ellicott, Jamestown, the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office and the New York State Police.
