Two Buffalo men were given jail sentences by Cheektowaga Town Justice Paul S. Piotrowski on their separate convictions for shoplifting incidents at the Walden Galleria and at the Thruway Plaza on Jan. 24.

Christopher A. Young, 62, of Fillmore Avenue, was ordered to serve a term of up to six months at the Erie County Correctional Facility on his petit larceny conviction for stealing CDs and a CD player from the Walmart in the Thruway Plaza.

Reginald Cheatham, 45, of Bailey Avenue, was ordered to serve a term of up to five months on his petit larceny conviction for stealing blue jeans from the J.C. Penny Store at the Walden Galleria.

Both men were stopped by store security officers who turned them over to police. The judge cited the criminal histories of both men in refusing to put them on probation.
