Schenectady Man Pleads Guilty in Target Sports Break-In

Christian Roman Target Sports

There’s now a fifth guilty plea in connection with last year's break-in at Target Sports, in which more than 65 weapons were stolen.

Christian Roman of Schenectady also admits in federal court that, with the assistance of various accomplices, he spent the days after the burglary moving the stolen firearms between various locations in Schenectady and Amsterdam before they were taken to Rochester. 

Jose Fontanez, also of Schenectady, pleaded guilty earlier this year to three felony counts in the case.

Three others have pleaded guilty to helping the two in moving the guns out of the area. 

At his sentencing in April, Roman faces up to 20 years in prison, and a fine of up to $500,000.
