Herkimer Police have made an arrest in the robbery at a smoke shop on North Main Street.

The robbery occurred around 7 p.m. on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 when a man wearing what was described as an Albert Einstein mask walked into Smoker Friendly on North Main Street in the Village of Herkimer and demanded cash from an employee. The suspect made off with an undisclosed amount of cash, but within 24 hours, police said they had a suspect in custody.

Shane P. Lynch, 49, of Herkimer was arrested on Wednesday and charged with third-degree burglary. He was arraigned in Herkimer Village Court and sent to the Herkimer County Jail without bail.

The Herkimer Police were assisted at the time of the incident by New York State Police, Mohawk Police, Ilion Police, Little Falls Police, Frankfort Police and the New York State Parole in securing the scene and assisting in a search for the suspect.

i hope this repeat offender gets brought before a real judge that isnt limp on crime. this guy should never have been let out in the first place. this is new york state so i guess traffic violations are a better money maker for the system then keeping law abiding tax payers safe

how many felonies can someone get before the system wakes the hell up? does someone haveto die first or what? i dont feel safe around here because the ones that are supposed to protect us only protect themselfs

Is this the guy that did the holdup and got a light sentence again? Yeah, I'd say he gave out some names to get a favor from you know who. Look it up. And is that even a mask?
