UTICA – A man has been charged in connection to the Fastrac robbery that occurred in Utica on Tuesday, according to the Utica Police Department.
Police say around 3 a.m. Tuesday, a man went into the Fastrac at 1668 Oneida St. in Utica and said he had a weapon – although he didn’t display one – and he demanded cash. The man then fled with an undisclosed amount of money.
Police say shortly afterward another incident happened nearby, and officers found a man matching the description of the robber and stopped him. Davon Garry, 31, was then arrested. Police say they also found a quantity of narcotics in his pocket.
Garry was brought to police headquarters and then St. Elizabeth Medical Center for an unrelated medical issue, and while he was at the hospital he kicked out a bathroom window and escaped from the area, according to police. He was then caught and taken into police custody without incident.
After being discharged from the hospital, Garry was charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree escape, third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.
