Out-of-town trucks targeted in thefts

Falls police investigated two car break-ins to out-of-town trucks in the downtown area Tuesday.

More than $5,000 in items were taken from a van parked in the lot of a hotel on the 400 block of Main Street. The van's owner told Falls police the theft occurred sometime between 5 and 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The lock was punched out on a rear passenger-side door to gain entry.

A GPS unit, clothing, medication, $1,600, iPod and a laptop computer belonging to several people traveling in the van. The total estimated loss is $5,600.

An Illinois man told police that sometime between 6 and 7:30 p.m. Tuesday someone smashed out a window and a $200 cell phone from his 2010 Honda Odyssey while it was parked on the 100 block of Main Street. The phone had been left on the front passenger floorboard of the vehicle. 

The phone's owner, a physical therapist, said that the phone could contain some patients personal information. He was urged to contact the cell phone provider.

 

LOCKPORT

Firearms stolen from Boy Scouts hall

An official at the Iroquois Trail Council, Boy Scouts of America hall at 7121 Rochester Road, Lockport, reported Monday that sometime since Aug. 2 the hall had been burglarized. 

The suspect forced their way into a storage room and took four shotguns, four rifles, a compound bow and about $300 in ammunition.

The official said dividing doors between the east and west wing o the building were still locked and it didn't appear the suspect gained entry into the west wing.

In addition, the suspect forced their way into several offices leased to another company. Deputies were contacting representatives of that company to determine if anything was taken from the offices.

It wasn't clear initially how the suspect got into the building in the first place. Members of the sheriff's ID unit were called in to process the scene.
