Stolen BMW found near Niagara County Jail

LEWISTON – Police said a 2004 BMW stolen from a North Fourth Street residence last weekend was located the next day, a short distance away from the Niagara County Jail in the Town of Lockport.

The owner of the vehicle told Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies that a friend had taken the vehicle, without permission, while the owner was sleeping last Sunday. Deputies found the vehicle abandoned on Lower Mountain Road, and later learned that the man who had taken the vehicle was being held in the county jail on an unrelated arrest warrant.
