Ransomville

• INCIDENT: A Youngstown-Lockport Road woman reported early Saturday morning that there were people outside of her bedroom window. The woman told sheriff's deputies she and her daughter heard rustling and foot steps outside the home and they could hear someone whispering. Deputies noted that the woman had reported a similar incident earlier this month and the woman said it was the fifth or sixth time it had happened this month. The deputy searched outside the home but could find nothing out of the ordinary. The deputy said the home would be periodically checked. 

Newfane

• VANDALISM: Officials from  First Baptist Church, 6047 East Ave., reported Sunday that sometime since Friday someone had damaged a sign in front of the church. A deputy said it appeared the damage was intentional as the sign was hit with enough force to cause the sign to break on both sides. There was no evidence at the scene. There was also no estimate of damage to the $1,500 sign.

Gasport

• STOLEN CAR: A 30-year-old Gasport Road resident reported his 2010 Ford F-150 pickup truck stolen Sunday morning. The resident said he thought the truck had been left locked in his driveway. The man said a spare set of keys that had been hanging in his kitchen were gone as well. Deputies could find no signs of forced entry into the home. The man contacted OnStar officials — who said they couldn't help him because he hadn't renewed his subscription. The man noted his wife told him that the center console in her car had been gone through sometime Friday night. An investigation is continuing. The estimated loss is $10,000.
