Man damages door running from Newfane Town Court

Editor's note: The Niagara County Sheriff's Office clarified some of the information from this report, which ran in Wednesday's Gazette.

A man in Newfane Town Court facing incarceration at Niagara County Jail for violating conditions of his parole ran from the courthouse, damaging a door in the process.

He is now wanted on two warrants.

Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies said the man was in court voluntarily for a scheduled hearing on June 25.

The report said the man was appearing for a parole violation and when Justice Bruce Barnes announced that he was being sent to Niagara County Jail, the man bolted out an east-side court room door, causing $200 damage to the door. The damage to the door was reported Saturday.

The man is now wanted on a warrant on the original charges as related to his parole — fourth-degree grand larceny and third-degree identity theft — and a second warrant for second-degree criminal contempt and fourth-degree criminal mischief.

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.
