LOCKPORT – A Buffalo man who led a shoplifting effort earlier this year at the Saks Off 5th store in the Fashion Outlets, Town of Niagara, pleaded guilty to a felony Friday in Niagara County Court.

Derrick M. Nailor, 57, of Simon Street, admitted to fourth-degree grand larceny and faces as long as four years in prison when he is sentenced March 21 by County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III. In the meantime, Nailor is serving a 90-day sentence in Erie County for a Cheektowaga shoplifting incident in 2012.

Assistant District Attorney Kevin D. Canali said Nailor was one of four people who headed for “a rack of expensive designer jeans” at Saks and filled garbage bags with them before fleeing the store Aug. 13.

A car chase followed in and out of the mall parking lot before Nailor and Dominique L. Bradshaw, 18, of Dutton Avenue, Buffalo, were caught; the other two thieves escaped and have not been identified, Canali said. Bradshaw is awaiting sentencing for a reduced charge of petit larceny. She and Nailor have been banned from the mall for life.
