BLOTTER: Police reports published Dec. 1

City of Lockport

Possession: Cory J. Rising, 34, 6599 Royal Parkway North, was charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of marijuana Tuesday. A patrol officer responded to a request to check on the welfare of an allegedly suicidal man in the 400 block of Walnut Street and found the man exiting a vehicle. Rising, the vehicle driver, also exited the vehicle, left it running and approached the officer to speak with him. When the officer detected the smell of unburned marijuana on Rising and asked him about it, Rising said an ounce of pot was stashed in a door of his car, the report said. The officer retrieved a quantity of pot from the car door and two smaller bags of pot beneath the driver seat, the report said; the officer also seized $649 cash from Rising and his vehicle. Rising was arraigned Wednesday in City Court.

Town of Lockport

DWI: Karen L. Hagar-Flick, 47, 8825 Chestnut Ridge Road, Gasport, was charged with driving while intoxicated and first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday on Route 77. Hagar-Flick’s vehicle was stopped for an alleged traffic infraction, following too closely, according to state police; upon interview Hagar-Flick exhibited signs of alcohol intoxication and was charged. On a breath test, Hagar-Flick’s blood alcohol content measured 0.14 percent, the agency said. Hagar-Flick received a ticket to appear Dec. 13 in Town Court.


Larceny: A property owner in the 3700 block of Ewings Road reported two pieces of farm equipment were taken from his yard Monday. The pieces are a 32-foot, orange fiberglass ladder valued at $350 and red tractor forks valued at $800, according to the Niagara County sheriff’s report. The owner said a Native American man with a pony tail and a large tattoo on his left arm, driving a black Chevy pickup, approached him outdoors about 9 a.m. Monday, inquired about scrap metal on the property, then complimented his home and drove away. The owner and his wife left the property for about an hour and discovered the thefts after they returned and noticed drag marks on the driveway, the report said.  The pickup driver had a passenger, described as a white male about 50 years old dressed in camouflage, the report said.


Larceny: A homeowner in the 3700 block of Braley Road reported two parked vehicles were entered and items were removed sometime overnight Sunday-Monday. Between the two cars, missing items include an 18-volt cordless tool kit, a DeWalt sawsall, a Garmin GPS unit and about $5 in loose change, for a combined loss of $665, according to the sheriff’s report.
