BLOTTER: Police reports published Aug. 17


Salhany turned himself in to the Lockport Police Department on Monday and was held on $1,000 bail.

On Tuesday, a Locust Street tenant who lives in a lower apartment reported that as of January she believes that Salhany, who lives at the upper apartment which has a Spruce Street address, has been stealing her cable by splicing into her cable wires which are in the shared basement. She contacted Time Warner which discovered the illegal hook up.

According to the report, Salhany's power has been shut off for some time, but the downstair's neighbor noticed that some lights have been turned on at night and she could hear the TV. The police discovered an extension cord running from Sahlany's door to an electric outlet belonging to the victim.
