Kasprzycki created a disturbance during an appearance in city court at 10:18 a.m. Wednesday and was removed from the courtroom.

• ARREST: A Falls man was arrested after police found him in possession of items taken in a burglary. Officers said they were investigating a harassment complaint at an apartment building in the 700 block of Eight Street at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. They said when they interviewed the suspect, Steven Heylek, they saw two totes inside his apartment and electronic equipment and clothes taken in a burglary of another apartment in the building.

Ransomville
• THEFT: A Youngstown-Lockport Road man reported Wednesday to Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies that two 2008 Kawasaki all-terrian vehicles were missing from his property. The two ATVs are valued at $7,500, the report said. The victim reported a metal lock on the shed that housed one of the ATVs was broken in half, while the other ATV was missing from its spot in the victim’s temporary carport. A member of the victim’s family heard the ATVs being started up at about 2:43 a.m., but thought it was a member of the family taking them for a ride, which wouldn’t have been out of the ordinary, the victim said.
