PARKING PROBLEM: The property manager for the Big Lots on South Transit Road reported Sunday that a white 1994 Isuzu Rodeo had been parked in the lot for five to seven days. The manager requested that the vehicle be towed, according to the Niagara County Sheriff's Office.

LARCENY: A Jennifer Drive man reported that two unlocked cars in his driveway were entered some time between 10:30 p.m. Saturday and 8 a.m. Sunday, and a total of $103 was stolen from the vehicles, according to the sheriff's office.

WELFARE CHECK: A manager at the Tops on South Transit Road reported that a 5-year-old boy was found unattended in the store just before 9 a.m. Saturday, carrying his father's wallet and $200 cash. The boy told Tops workers that he was shopping for his sister. Before deputies arrived, the boy's mother arrived at the store. According to the sheriff's office, the boy's mother said she had fallen asleep on the couch, and that other children in the house told her that the boy left. The family lives across the street from Tops. The boy's mother told deputies that the boy had left the house before, but had never crossed the road. Deputies observed that the boy seemed unwashed and had scratches on his face. He had shoes on the wrong feet and no socks on. According to the sheriff's office, the boy was turned over to his mother. Deputies also contacted Child Protective Services and let them know about the incident. 

MISCHIEF: A Dysinger Road man reported that both passenger-side tires on his vehicle were slashed some time between 12:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Feb. 21. The man said he believed a particular acquaintance may have done the damage but he asked the sheriff's office to not contact that person. The case is closed due to a lack of witnesses and the victim not wanting to take further action, according to the sheriff's office.


DOG BITE: A Fed Ex delivery person reported that he was bit by a dog while delivering a package to a Saunders Settlement Road residence on Feb. 21. A sheriff's deputy examined the delivery person's left hand and said the wounds were consistent with a dog bite. The homeowner verified that her dog had bit the delivery person, and told the deputy that the dog, a 60-pound black poodle, is up-to-date on its shots. A dog-bite report was filed with the Niagara County Department of Health, according to the sheriff's office.
