From car break-ins to tire slashings in Wilson

Niagara County Sheriff's deputies were notified of several incident of vehicle tires being slashed in a trailer park in the Village of Wilson early Thursday morning.

The suspect in the tire slashings was described as a 6-foot tall white man wearing a black hoodie and dark jeans.

Deputies responded to incidents at B and D streets in Dorwood Park. None of the victims had any idea who would want to cause the damage to their cars.

The incidents come a day after a rash of car break-ins were reported in the village.

A Wood Street man said he saw three males going through his car about 3:30 a.m.Wednesday and managed to grab one of them, a juvenile. The other two youths ran off into some nearby woods. The youth was charged with petit larceny and turned over to his parents.

One Lake Street victim reported to a deputy that someone entered her unlocked car overnight Tuesday and stole a Samsung Slider cell phone, a black leather purse, her driver's license and three credit/debit cards.

The office has fielded several reports of car break-ins and residents are advised to check their vehicles and report any thefts to the sheriff's office.

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.
