LOCKPORT

Stolen car found by sheriff's deputies

Called out to the South Transit Road area about 3 a.m. Wednesday for an attempt to locate a vehicle reported stolen by Amherst police, a deputy had just finished searching the area and was heading back to his post when he spotted the vehicle. 

Traveling south on South Transit Road, the car pulled in to a tavern parking lot. The deputy followed him into the lot and activated his emergency lights. Already out of the car, Joseph D. Ehrenreich was ordered back into the car at gunpoint.

Despite the order, the deputy said Ehrenreich was being passively resistant and was refusing to get back into the car. He eventually allowed the deputy to place him in handcuffs and Amherst police were notified.

Ehrenreich appeared intoxicated and failed field sobriety tests. He refused to take a chemical test.
