Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — FRAUD: A Meyer Road woman received a phone call telling her that she didn’t pay her 2010 taxes, and that she was being sued around 3:30 p.m. Monday, the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office said. The woman was given a number to call, and when she called, a man with an accent told her that she owed $2,000 to the IRS. After the woman said she paid her 2010 taxes, she was informed that she could either fill out a form that would be sent to her, or the local sheriff’s department would be coming to her house within the hour to put her in jail for six months. The woman began to argue, and the man hung up on her. A dispatcher from the Sheriff’s Office called the number using a fake name and was also informed that he didn’t pay his taxes and would be sent to jail. The incident was sent to the Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Bureau. 

Town of Newfane

BURGLARY: A woman living on the 1800 block of West Creek Road reported that her door had pry marks on it and that it didn’t operate properly, the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office said. The incident occurred some time between March 3 and Sunday, the Sheriff’s Office said. The woman spent several days in the hospital during that time, and did not have a vehicle in the driveway when she returned home, which may have led to someone thinking the home was unoccupied. The woman said she doesn’t think anything was stolen, but that she’ll call the Sheriff’s Office if she notices anything missing. The woman wanted to report the incident in case there are other similar incidents in the area, the Sheriff’s Office said.

WARRANT: Larry R. Reed, 64, was charged on a warrant with second-degree criminal possession of marijuana, third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and resisting arrest around 9:10 p.m. March 8 at his home, 3740 Braley Road. Reed was arraigned in Wilson Town Court, where he was ordered jailed in lieu of $10,000 bail, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Reed is due to return to Town Court on March 27.
