Buffalo man found guilty in 2012 string of robberies

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A 38-year-old Buffalo man has been found guilty by jury of committing burglaries at residences throughout Erie County in 2012.

Bryan Colon was found guilty of six counts of second-degree burglary. Colon previously pleaded guilty to the charges in Sept. 2014 before appealing his conviction. The New York State Supreme Court Appellate Division vacated his guilty plea in July 2017.

Colon forcibly entered six homes, stealing cash, jewelry, televisions, computers and other electronics totaling more than $45,000 in estimated value.

Prior to his crime spree in 2012, Colon served nearly ten years in prison after being convicted of first degree robbery for kidnapping a man at gunpoint on the city’s West Side.

As a second time felony offender, Colon faces a maximum of 90 years in prison when he is sentenced April 17.
