$1,360 stolen from South Transit restaurant

An unknown person got away with $1,360 from a South Transit Road restaurant after throwing a brick through a window overnight Tuesday.

According to a report filed with the Niagara County Sheriff's Office, a brick was thrown through the double-pane window on the west side of Kalamata Family Restaurant, 5690 South Transit Road, sometime between 10:10 p.m. Tuesday and 5:56 a.m. Wednesday.

Employees said the money was taken from the cash register, which appeared to have been opened with a passcode. The coin tray appeared to have been lifted from the cash drawer and was left on the floor along with several pieces of paper.

Outside of the broken window, laying in the grass, was a Lefas Virgin Olive Oil metal container, which employees stated was originally on the window sill as decoration. It appeared that the suspect moved the container off the window sill and placed it on the ground after throwing a brick through the window. The brick was located under one of the tables about 15 feet into the restaurant.

The case was forwarded to the Criminal Investigation Bureau for further review.

Emergency responders were called to Buffalo City Hall Thursday morning, where a man jumped to his death.

Police and fire personnel were called to the building just after 10 a.m., where a man described as white and in his 20s apparently scaled a wall of the observation desk on the 28th floor and then jumped.

The man’s body was found on the fifth floor landing on the southwest side of city hall. Police said foul play isn't suspected.

Police did not say whether this person is an employee at the building. A spokesman said they have not found a note from the man, whose identity has not been released.
