ITHACA, N.Y. – An Ithaca man was indicted in Tompkins County Court on Thursday afternoon on charges related to multiple armed robberies of local convenience stores.
Curt Rosenfeld, 32, was indicted on three charges of first-degree robbery after three local robberies led to his arrest earlier this year. The robberies took place on separate occasions within one week in December.

The first robbery took place on Dec. 17 at a Mirabito Convenience Store in the Town of Dryden at 3:17 a.m. Two days later on Dec. 19, a second robbery was reported at the Byrne Dairy in the City of Ithaca at 10:44 p.m. The next robbery was reported on Dec. 24 at Shortstop Deli in the City of Ithaca at 4:18 a.m.
Video surveillance footage showed the suspect displaying what appeared to be a gun during each robbery.
Following a multi-jurisdictional task force effort, Rosenfeld was identified as the suspect and arrested on Jan. 24. Police say they recovered a bb/pellet type gun at the defendant’s residence, which was found to be the handgun used during the robberies.
Rosenfeld is currently in custody at the Tompkins County Jail where his bail is set for $25,000 dollar cash or $50,000 dollar bail bond.
