NEW BALTIMORE — A Troy man suspected of robbing the West Coxsackie Xtra Mart on Sept. 2 was formally charged Friday, Capt. Tracey Quinn of the Greene County Sheriff’s Office said.

Lance Treadwell, 47, was charged Thursday with first-degree robbery, a class B felony, first degree criminal use of a firearm, a class B felony, and petty larceny, a class A misdemeanor, Quinn said.

Treadwell was arraigned in New Baltimore Town Court and was transferred to the custody of the Greene County Sheriff’s Office without bail, Quinn said.

Treadwell was arraigned after he was discharged from Albany Medical Center on Thursday. He had been hospitalized since Sunday, when he was found unconscious by Albany police at a home on the 200 block of Manning Boulevard.

Albany police officers surrounded the home on Sunday after the Greene County Sheriff’s Office received information that Treadwell was at the Manning Boulevard address. Police have not disclosed details about how Treadwell made his way to the house or the reason he was there, nor have they offered details about the state of his health or the reason he was taken to Albany Med.

Treadwell was wanted by the Greene County Sheriff’s Office in connection with a robbery at the Xtra Mart at 12749 Route 9W in West Coxsackie while carrying a handgun Sept. 2, Quinn said.

The robbery took place about 8:15 p.m. at the convenience store, which is across from Exit 21B of the New York State Thruway, Quinn said.

Treadwell allegedly fled the store with an undisclosed amount of cash, Quinn said. Assisting the Greene County Sheriff’s Office with finding Treadwell and taking him into custody were the New York state Parole Department, state police, police from Watervliet, Troy, Schenectady and Albany, the Albany County Sheriff’s Office and the Rensselaer County Sheriff’s Office, Quinn said.
