The man accused of doing serious damage inside Buffalo City Hall during a protest, is now facing a new charge. Courtland Renford, 21, of Buffalo, is accused of throwing a burning cardboard box through a City Hall window. Now, he’s accused of burglarizing a 7-11 convenience store on Elmwood Avenue, just an hour prior. During a protest back in May, Renford is accused of causing damage inside the tax room at Buffalo City Hall. Prosecutors say a local news photographer captured that video. Renford faces arson in the second degree. And, in a new development, Renford has been charged with burglary, accused of breaking into a 7-11 with a large group of stealing cigarettes and drinks.
