• THEFT: Police are investigating a reported theft between 5:40 and 5:55 p.m. Friday from a business in the 8400 block of Niagara Falls Boulevard. The store manager told police he stopped a woman pushing a shopping cart with luggage he believed was about to be stolen inside. When questioned, the woman said the luggage was a Christmas present and displayed mail from inside the luggage to prove her story. When the manager asked the woman to open the luggage, he said, the woman ran while pushing the cart. He said he phoned police and chased her. He was able to reclaim the shopping cart and luggage, though she fled on foot and was not located. He told police the luggage was confirmed stolen and had laundry detergent, soap, shower gel and several towels inside. The total value of the items was $120, he said.
