Lockport man gets unexpected delivery — hollow-point bullets

Niagara County Sheriff's deputies were called to Lock Haven Drive address after a resident there found more than he expected in a box delivered Friday.

The man said he ordered a chair over the Internet and the large box was dropped off at his home. Inside the shipping box was a second, smaller box. Believing it to be parts, the man opened it and found 500 rounds of .45-caliber hollow-point bullets.

The man examined the box a bit more closely and discovered it was actually addressed to a Niagara Falls man.

The sheriff's office contacted the ATF and an investigation into how the $200 in ammo was shipped across state lines is being investigated. The bullets were taken by the sheriff's office in the meantime.

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.
