Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Lockport
• HARASSMENT: Timothy W. Ward, 47, 113 South St., was charged with second-degree harassment Monday night. Ward is accused of pushing a woman into a wall, and onto a floor, at his residence, after a day of drinking, according to the arrest report.

• MINOR FIRE: Sheriff’s deputies and South Lockport Volunteer firefighters extinguished a small fire on the exterior of an apartment house in the 5700 block of Oxford Lane on Tuesday afternoon. According to the sheriff’s report, a fire developed at the southwest corner some time after a tenant chucked a cigarette butt out a window aiming for an ashtray below. The tenant called in the fire, the report said. Damage to the building siding is estimated at $2,000.
• VANDALISM: A property owner in the 3800 block of Coomer Road reported Tuesday that roughly 30 trees were cut down and most of the wood was removed from his property some time between early September 2012 and mid-March. The sheriff’s deputy who responded to the complaint was not able to locate the owner of adjacent property for information, according to the incident report. The trees’ value is listed as “unknown.”
• POSSESSION: Danielle J. Parker, 26, 3652 Ewings Road, was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana Saturday evening at Eastern Niagara Hospital-Newfane. Parker was taken to the hospital for emergency medical treatment and a staff member found a small bag of suspected marijuana tucked into Parker’s bra, the sheriff’s report said. Parker received a ticket to appear in Town Court on Tuesday.
• PROPERTY DAMAGE: A camper at Harbor Inn campsites, Lake Road, Olcott, reported a gun shot struck his camper and broke a window Saturday afternoon. Sheriff’s deputies responded and located the shooter, a coyote hunter who agreed to pay for any damages he’d caused, the incident report said. Deputies ascertained the shooter has a valid hunting license and was well over 500 feet away from the camp site when he fired the gun. Further investigation linked the shooter to property damage at another lot; it appears buckshot penetrated the siding of a camper and broke a mirror inside, the report said.
