TOWN OF BATAVIA – A City of Batavia man was charged Tuesday by the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office with the late night break-in at the Spring/More Wireless store on Veteran’s Memorial Drive earlier this month.

Justin C. Smith, 36, of Huchins Street, is accused of stealing five cellphones from the store on Oct. 16, 17 and 18. None of the phones have been recovered, deputies said.

Smith was arraigned in Town Court on burglary and grand larceny charges and returned to the Genesee County Jail, where he awaits transfer to state prison for an unrelated burglary conviction.
