Pickup driver who damaged Wilson field sought

Niagara County Sheriff's deputies were called to a Lake Road farm on Sunday where the owner reported people in three separate pickup trucks were driving through orchard, doing burnouts and damaging the farmland.

The farmer said he tried to confront one of the people about 6:15 p.m. Sunday but the pickup sped off down Lake Road. The farm owner was able to provide a description of the driver, the license plate number of the truck and noted that the pickup had a white license plate holder, possibly belonging to a fire department.

Deputies used the plate number to track the pickup to a Lockport address. Deputies learned that the son of the man at the Lockport address was a member of a local fire company. Deputies could not locate the son Sunday but planned to look for him in the following days.

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.
