Man charged with taking corn, change money from roadside stand

The operators of a roadside stand at a farm on Lockport Road told Niagara County Sheriff's deputies they saw a man in a black car take items from the stand and drive off on Friday.

The theft occurred shortly after 4:30 p.m. and the witness said the man took two or three bags of corn and about $6 left at the stand for customers to make change from.

It's believed the man has taken items from the stand twice before. 

A license plate number was provided to deputies and they used it to track the man to a 61st Street home in Niagara Falls where his grandmother lived.

While being interviewed, Jeffrey P. Licastro, age not provided, admitted to deputies he took the corn. He was taken into custody on an unspecified charge and deputies noted that a records check showed he was wanted on an outstanding warrant out of Florida for drugs but state officials would not extradite.

Licastro did hand over one bag of corn before he was jailed in lieu of $150 bail. Deputies returned it to the farm.

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.
