A 32-year-old Williamsville man – already in custody at the Erie County Holding Center on earlier robbery charges – was formally charged Friday with robbery in a Feb. 18 incident in which he made off with prescription medications from a Town of Clarence drug store.

Erie County sheriff’s deputies said Kenneth Beebe was charged with third-degree robbery, fourth-degree grand larceny and menacing for the robbery at the Walgreens drug store at Transit and Greiner roads. The investigation was led by Sheriff’s Detective Daniel Brinkerhoff, who worked with Amherst police.
