Descendant of Prominent Family Accused of Thefts



BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A member of a prominent western New York family is charged with stealing heirlooms, including guns, and selling them to buy heroin.
  
Police in East Aurora say 22-year-old Megan Hubbard-Riley and her boyfriend took 13 handguns and other valuables from her mother, Mary Hubbard's, house over six months.
  
Officers say one of the guns was used in a shooting in Buffalo last week.
  
Mary Hubbard is a granddaughter of Elbert Hubbard, who at the end of the 19th Century founded the Roycroft artisan community as a cradle of the arts and crafts movement in East Aurora.
  
Hubbard-Riley and John Lawandus are charged with grand larceny.
