BLOTTER: Police reports published March 10


Venison stolen from home

Niagara County Sheriff's deputies were called to a Beattie Avenue home on Friday for a report of stolen deer meat.

The resident said someone entered his home and took the venison from a freezer sometime between Feb. 14 and Thursday. There was four backstraps, 30 pounds of cube venison steak and 14 pounds of breakfast sausage removed from the freezer.

The resident said he talked to family members who said they hadn't touched the meat.


Emergency alert system sends crews to empty home

Members of the South Lockport Fire Co. forcibly entered a home on Carleton Lake Drive Friday morning after an emergency alert company alerted sheriff's dispatchers to a "Fall Detection Signal" at the home.

Neither the company nor fire company officials could get a response from the 81-year-old resident by phone or at the front door so firefighters forced entry through the front door. They could not find anyone in the home.

A sheriff's deputy noted that an empty car was parked in the driveway at the time.

A phone number for the resident was found and they were called and advised of the situation.
