MAYVILLE, NY (WNY News Now) – A 23-year-old Buffalo man will spend a half-decade behind bars after he was sentenced in connection with a strong-armed robbery in Chautauqua County.

The Chautauqua County District Attorney’s Office announced Tyrese White was sentenced to five years in state prison plus five years of post-release supervision on Monday.

White previously pled guilty to felony robbery in October after he was accused of traveling to Chautauqua County under the guise of purchasing a vehicle listed for sale on Facebook Marketplace.

However, prosecutors accused White, and another participant, committing a strong-arm robbery where they assaulted the victim and stole their vehicle.
