A North Tonawanda man was arrested Thursday along with a juvenile male in connection with the Sept. 3, 2012 armed robbery of a Wheatfield 7-Eleven store, Niagara County sheriff’s officials reported.

James Williamson, 24, and the juvenile were each charged with first-degree robbery for allegedly holding up the Plaza Drive store with an apparent handgun at about midnight. Taken during the heist were cigarettes, cash and a donation jar.

A joint investigation between sheriff’s officials and the Niagara Falls Police led to the information that culminated in the arrests.

Both were arraigned in Wheatfield Town Court pending future action in Niagara County Court.
