ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) — A Wayne County man has admitted to attempted burglary following a home invasion in Orchard Park.
In August 2019, Albert Webber, 40, and 41-year-old Town of Tonawanda resident Anthony Busch unlawfully went into the home of an elderly couple. Previously, Busch was employed by the couple as a home improvement contractor.
During this the time of the home invasion, prosecutors say Webber pointed a gun at the female victim and demanded her purse and other property.
Previously, Busch pleaded guilty to grand larceny, as well as second and third-degree burglary. Following this, in July 2020, Busch was sentenced to seven years in prison.
Webber, who prosecutors say is a second violent felony offender, will be sentenced on December 2. He faces up to seven years in prison, and remains in custody without bail.
