Suspect apprehended in robbery


ALBANY — A Troy man who was wanted for allegedly robbing the Xtra Mart in West Coxsackie was taken into custody after a raid at an Albany home, Capt. Tracey Quinn of the Greene County Sheriff’s Office said.

Lance Treadwell, 47, was taken to Albany Medical Center after he was found, unconscious, by the Albany City Police Emergency Services Team, Quinn said.

Treadwell was carried out of the home by officers, Quinn said. Police did not provide further details of his condition Monday.

Treadwell was wanted by the Greene County Sheriff’s Office in connection with a robbery at the Xtra Mart store on Route 9W in West Coxsackie, while armed with a handgun Wednesday night, Quinn said.

A large police presence was in place for several hours outside the home on the 200 block of Manning Boulevard in Albany, before officers lost contact with Treadwell and made the decision to enter the home and arrest him, Quinn said.

He was taken into custody shortly before 6 p.m. Quinn said. An armored police vehicle was brought to the scene, outside the home.

Police did not disclose the relationship between Treadwell and residents at the Manning Boulevard address. It is not known at this time if any of the home’s residents were charged.

Treadwell was wanted on charges of first-degree robbery, first-degree criminal use of a firearm, and petty larceny, as well as having an active parole warrant, Quinn said. The robbery took place at about 8:15 p.m. Wednesday at the Xtra Mart at 12749 Route 9W in West Coxsackie, across from Exit 21B of the New York State Thruway, Quinn said.

Treadwell allegedly fled the store with an undisclosed amount of cash in a gray, late-model Ford Escape, Quinn said. The male store clerk was not injured in the incident, Quinn said.

Assisting the Greene County Sheriff’s Office with locating Treadwell and taking him into custody were New York State Parole, state police, Watervliet Police, Troy Police, Schenectady Police, Albany City Police, the Albany County Sheriff’s Office, and the Rensselaer County Sheriff’s Office, Quinn said.
