Niagara Falls

 THEFT: Police are investigating a theft in the 2200 block of Niagara Avenue. A taxi driver told officers he was dropping off a fare at 11:40 a.m. Sunday and got out of his vehicle to take some items out of it and hand them to the passenger. A few minutes later, the cabbie said he noticed that some cash had been taken from his wallet, which he left in the driver's side door handle.

• WARRANT: Timothy J. McPhaden, 57, 3629 Ridge Road, was charged Saturday with resisting arrest. Deputies said they used pepper spray and physical force to subdue McPhaden, who reportedly refused to cooperate with them as they tried to take him into custody on an outstanding warrant for third-degree meancing. He had reportedly been involved in an incident the night before that resulted in a menacing charge being lodged against him, sheriff’s deputies said. When McPhaden returned home the following morning, several deputies attempted to take him into custody but were met with sustained resistance. McPhaden was finally subdued with the use of pepper spray.  

Wilson

• DWI: James W. Hedley, 63, 5776 Beach Street, Olcott, was charged Saturday with driving while intoxicated after being stopped on Lake Road. Deputies said Hedley was pulled over for failure to keep right, as he reportedly crossed over the center line. He was also driving 15 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone. Deputies asked for his license, at which point Hedley fumbled through his wallet but was unsuccessful in locating it, although it was in a sleeve Hedley had in his hand. Hedley appeared to have glassy eyes and slurred speech and had an odor of alcohol on him, deputies said. Deputies asked if he know why he was stopped, which Hedley reportedly said, "I'm not going to lie, you got me." They asked Hedley if he had any alcoholic beverages to drink, which Hedley said "Yes." When asked how much, Hedley said "Too much." Hedley was arrested on $500 bail.
