Attempted break-in at church, liquor store investigated

Niagara County Sheriff's deputies were called to Main Street early Saturday morning after receiving a report of man trying to break into a church and liquor store.

A woman working at a nearby store called police about 3:30 a.m. to report she saw a man trying to open several windows at the church before moving on to the liquor store where he was attempting to open a north side door.

Deputies responded to the area and found a man matching the suspect's description in the parking lot of Eastern Niagara Hospital Newfane. He was brought back to the Main Street store where the worker positively identified him.

The man was eventually released after deputies could find no indications of attempted entry at the church and liquor store.
