BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A 21-year-old Buffalo man has been indicted on charges of arson and burglary.
During a protest this past May, prosecutors say Courtland Renford threw a burning cardboard box through a first-floor window at Buffalo City Hall. This resulted in damage to the walls and floor, officials say.
Earlier that night, authorities say Renford and others broke a glass door to get into a convenience store on Elmwood Ave. near Summer St.
Renford was accused of stealing a drink and multiple packs of cigarettes.
He’s currently in federal custody on a pending matter before the U.S. District Court.
If convicted, Renford could spend up to 15 years in prison.
