Sex offender posters cause stir at Lockport apartment building

Niagara County Sheriff's deputies were called to a Glendale Drive apartment building Sunday by a resident who was complaining that several posters of questionable content were put up and scattered throughout the building.

The deputy did not describe what was on the posters, but they were described by one resident as slanderous and related to a sex offender living in the building. The deputy said a few of residents told him they found the posters inappropriate.

The deputy located the posters' creator, a resident in the apartment complex, who said she was simply informing her neighbors of the man's status as a sex offender. 

When the deputy explained the charges she would face if she continued putting up the posters, she agreed to stop. Several of the posters were taken by the deputy as evidence.
