John Williams, Gabriel's Bistro Burglarized

John Williams Pastry Shop and Gabriel’s Bistro were burglarized this morning, and the Falconer, New York, man who admitted to committing the crimes is in McKean County Jail.

City Police say they got a call at 4:19 a.m. saying someone wearing a black mask and dark hoodie was inside John Williams. When police got there, they noticed signs of forced entry, and soon saw a man walking a dolly cart and stopped him. After 41-year-old Richard Schultz told police he had a hammer on him, one officer patted him down looking for more weapons and found a bundle of cash in his pocket. Then they saw the business’s safe outside the back of the building, the cash drawer on the ground and damage to doors.

Court papers say that while being interviewed by police Schultz confessed to the John Williams burglary, and also admitted to breaking into Gabriel’s Bistro, where he grabbed the dolly cart he used at John Williams.

His bail is set at $25,000, and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for February 12.
