On a cold winter day, in March of 1997, three Rochester, NY men planned one of the biggest armed robberies in local history.

One of those men, Rochester, NY mayor Lovely Warren's husband, Timothy Granison, was the getaway driver.

Granison, then 18-years old, drove his two friends, 25-year old Zachary Holmes, and 17-year old Josh Cottrell, to The Source Jewerly store located at 535 West Ridge Road, in the town of Greece, NY.

Holmes and Cottrell got out of the car, and entered the store with handguns.

As a woman was showing Zachary Holmes a tray of expensive diamond engagement rings, he jumped over the glass sales counter, then put his handgun to the employee's head.

Holmes then put his handgun to the employee's head, yelling at the terrified woman that he was going to kill her.

As Rochester, NY mayor Lovely Warren's husband played lookout/getaway driver outside the store, Holmes and Cottrell stuffed approximately $900,000 in diamonds and gold jewelry into bags, before running out the door to the waiting car, but not before police caught the three.

Timothy Granison turned snitch and in exchange for pleading guilty to second-degree robbery, received five years probation.

Holmes received 25 years after a jury found him guilty of first-degree armed robbery.

Cottrell pleaded guilty to armed robbery at The Source, and also to robbing two men, at gunpoint the previous day, on Monroe Avenue, received a total of 7 to 15 years in State prison.

Timothy Granison is now employed by UPS.

And there you have it, a little history of how Timothy Granison went from taking part in a nearly $1 Million dollar violent armed robbery, to being the husband of Rochester's first woman mayor!
