Sheriff's office investigates pair of Wheatfield break-ins

A garage break-in and a car break-in right down the street are being looked into by Niagara County Sheriff's investigators.

Sheriff's deputies were called to a home a on the 2800 block of Lockport Road on Monday where a resident reported a garage on the property had been broken into.

The break-in occurred sometime Sunday night and a 2010 Polaris ATV was taken. In the trunk of the vehicle was a battery jumper kit, large hunting knife, stream light flashlight, spotlights for the ATV and a tow rope. Nothing else was taken from the garage. A window was smashed to gain entry to the garage.

The resident said he had just bought the ATV from a dealership on Friday and he did not have it registered or insured yet. 

An ID unit responded to the home to process the garage for evidence. The estimated loss is $11,275.

Just down the street, another resident reported that someone smashed a passenger-side window of their car parked behind their residence and took an iPod Touch.

Sheriff's deputies noted the proximity to the garage break-in and said the two incidents could be related. The ID unit responded to the car after finishing its work in the garage.

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.
