After speaking with the front desk agent, investigators reported she stated Nieves had his hand in his pocket causing her to believe he had a gun. Nieves fled the scene after stealing approximately $250 dollars. After a three week investigation, Nieves was identified and an arrest warrant was filed.
Nieves was transported from Putnam County Correctional Facility to Rye Police Headquarters for processing. He was arraigned at the Rye City Court and transported back to Putnam County Correctional Facility, where he is being held on unrelated charges.
