MEDINA – A Medina resident admitted in court he broke into the Orleans Ford dealership in December, stole a truck and threatened a clerk at a gas station.

George Brown, 36, of Bernzomatic Drive could be sentenced to a maximum 2 1/3 to 7 years in state prison on Oct. 21. He pleaded guilty on County Court on Monday to third-degree burglary and third-degree attempted robbery.

Brown on Dec. 15 stole a truck from Orleans Ford. He then attempted to take gas from a gas station by threatening a clerk, the Orleans County District Attorney’s Office said.

After stealing the truck, Brown led Medina Police and state troopers on a multi-county pursuit. He had two children with him. He was stopped after driving over spikes deployed by the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office.
