• TRESPASSING: A Carriage Lane resident reported to Niagara County Sheriff's deputies Friday that he's having an ongoing issue with a neighbor who is hiding beer and drinking it on his property — to keep their family from finding out about their drinking. On Friday, the resident said he found two empty 30-packs of beer and four full beers on his back lawn. The resident said he put the empties and four full cans in his garage. On Saturday, another neighbor said they witnessed the suspected neighbor walk into the man's garage and take the four cans of beer, walking into the man's backyard to drink them. Deputies went to the unnamed suspect's house and issued them a ticket for trespassing.
