Wheatfield e-cigarette business burglarized again

Niagara County Sheriff's investigators are investigating another burglary at an e-cigarette business on the 2300 block of Niagara Falls Boulevard.

Responding to an alarm at the business about 3:45 a.m. Thursday, a sheriff's sergeant found an open window at the rear of the business and searched the inside of the business but didn't find anyone. A piece of plywood that led to a bathroom was removed to gain entry.

Once inside, the suspects took about $550 in merchandise from display cases, including several electronic cigarettes that vaporize a liquid solution to simulate smoking.

Items may also have been taken from the a store room but the owner said an inventory would need to be taken.

Sheriff's investigators are waiting for video surveillance footage from the business.

The owner of the business reported a week and a half ago that someone had tried to break into the business through a rear door but was unsuccessful.

In late June the business was burglarized after someone threw a large cinder block through a side window. Several items were taken from a display case and a laptop computer and $170 from a cash register was taken.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
