BLOTTER: Police reports published Feb. 4


• DWI: Jeffrey D. Wilson, 27, 548 Birchwood Drive, Lockport was charged at 10:59 p.m. Friday with DWI, moving from a lane unsafely and speed not prudent after patrol responded to a report of a vehicle in the ditch on Lockport Road at Comstock Road. Patrol found a pickup truck on its side in the ditch and saw a man next to the truck talking on a phone. A second man was walking away from the truck. A deputy spoke to the man who was walking away and he stated that he just stopped to help the driver. According to the report, the man also said that the driver appeared to be “7 sheets to the wind.” The driver, Wilson, said he was not injured but he appeared uncoordinated and was unable to speak clearly. He said he had one 24-ounce beer. A roadside breath screening device registered Wilson’s blood alcohol content at 0.19 percent.

• FRAUD: A Meadowbrook Acres man called Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies to report his Citizens Bank credit card had been duplicated and several purchases were made in North Carolina without his permission. The victim told deputies he was still in possession of his card so it appeared a second card with that number had been created. The man contacted the manager of an auto parts store where one of the purchases had been made and a clerk said she was familiar with the man who bought the items. The victim contacted police who pledged to follow up on the matter once he filed a report with the local agency.
