Teen charged in ‘harboring’ case

 
A Town of Niagara teen has been charged in connection with a search for two missing Falls teenagers. 
Town of Niagara Police say Jonathan J. Nichelson, 17, 6953 Ralph Court, was charged with second-degree obstructing governmental administration and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child. 
Nichelson is accused of “harboring” two teenagers from Niagara Falls who had been reported missing after apparently running away from their homes earlier this week.

LOCKPORT

 
Fire company treasurer arrested in theft

 
The former South Lockport Fire Co. treasurer is accused of stealing $10,000 from the company.
Donald St. Cyr, Jr. of Appleton was charged Thursday with third-degree grand larceny.
The New York State Police said it began an investigation after the South Lockport Fire Co. suspected that St. Cyr misappropriated $10,000 in funds, while acting as the company’s treasurer.
St. Cyr had previously resigned as treasurer and a subsequent audit of company records eventually led to the police investigation and arrest.
He was arraigned before Lockport Town Justice Raymond Schilling and released on his own recognizance. A return date of June 20 has been scheduled in Lockport Town Court.
