LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls man pleaded guilty to taking part in the June 28 armed robbery of the Valero gas station and convenience store in Sanborn.

Kenneth McNeil Jr., 25, of 20th Street, admitted to a reduced charge of attempted second-degree robbery, and he faces up to seven years in prison when he is sentenced April 11 by State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr.

McNeil and another man, who has yet to be charged, were armed with a pistol in the holdup. McNeil agreed to pay $421 in restitution to the business. McNeil, a second-time felon, has been in jail in lieu of $25,000 bail since his arrest Jan. 22.
