Two charged after deputy discovers stolen ATV

Two Falls men face charges related to a stolen ATV discovered Saturday night.

A Niagara County Sheriff's deputy reported he was on the 3700 block of Lockport Road about 8 p.m. Saturday and saw a man spinning an ATV through a patch of gravel. When the ATV driver saw the deputy, he tried to flee but stalled out the ATV in the middle of Lockport Road. Terrence L. Davis was detained by police.

A check of the ATV's vehicle identification number showed it was reported stolen from an Oakfield address on June 29. A short time later, David J. Hendrickson Jr. arrived at Lockport Road and told the deputy it was his ATV. He was eventually charged.

Hendrickson, 19, 736 17th St., faces a charge of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.

Davis, 19, 728 Townsend Place, was issued for traffic tickets related to his use of the ATV.
