Murder Suspect Arrested in Allegany

The man police believe murdered an assistant manager at the Hamburg Toys R Us in June has been picked up in the Village of Allegany.

38-year-old Bernard Grucza was arrested Wednesday morning in a South Seventh Street home, where he moved sometime after the June 29 murder.

Police say he stabbed 35-year-old Larry Wells when Wells walked in on him while he was burglarizing the store and that DNA evidence is part of what tied him to the crime. Grucza had been a loss prevention officer at the store.

He’s in jail without bail.
