NORTH TONAWANDA -- A 33-year-old North Tonawanda man was charged on Jan. 14 with first-degree identity theft and third-degree grand larceny following an investigation by New York State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation.

According to NYSP, on June 19, 2017 the BCI out of SP Lockport received a complaint of a developmentally disabled 33-year-old victim possibly being taken advantage of by Anthony J. Crowley.
