Construction materials stolen in Falls

NIAGARA FALLS – A homeowner told police on Wednesday that $800 worth of shingles that he left in his backyard were stolen overnight.

The resident in 200 block of 27th Street said he had left the shingles as well as siding and tools in his backyard so he could finish repairing his garage roof. The 63-year-old man said he left the materials at 7 p.m. and when he returned at 6:40 a.m. someone had taken 21 bundles, or 700 squares of shingles from the yard.

He told police the yard was open and accessible from an alley.
