WEST COXSACKIE — A Troy man suspected of allegedly robbing the Xtra Mart in West Coxsackie has been taken into custody, Capt. Tracey Quinn of the Greene County Sheriff’s Office said Sunday.

Lance Treadwell, 47, of Troy, was tracked to a residence on Manning Boulevard in Albany where he had barricaded himself in, Quinn said. The building was surrounded by police and after being unable to make contact with Treadwell, the Albany City Police Emergency Services Team was able to gain entry and locate Treadwell, who was unconscious, Quinn said.

Treadwell was taken to Albany Medical Center for an evaluation, Quinn said.

More information will be released by the Greene County Sheriff’s Office when it becomes available, Quinn said.

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. The man fled from 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.

Treadwell is known to law enforcement in Albany County. He was released from prison in February, after serving four years of a 7-year sentence for third-degree robbery, according to court papers. Treadwell pleaded guilty in Albany County Court to robbing the Sunoco Mini-mart on Exchange Street in Colonie at gunpoint in 2014, Cecilia Walsh of the Albany County District Attorney’s Office said Friday.

Previously, Treadwell served a 1 1/2 to 3-year sentence in prison for stealing a woman’s purse on Delaware Avenue in Albany. He pleaded guilty in that case in 2014 in Albany County Court, according to the Albany County District Attorney’s Office.
