PENDLETON – A woman returning Thursday afternoon interrupted a burglar in her Mapleton Road home, Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies said.
The woman told police she noticed a rear sliding glass door open about 3 p.m., and saw a white male run through the kitchen, stopping to grab something off the counter on his way out. She said the man fled on a mountain bike that had been propped against the house.
Deputies found pry marks on the rear door. An inventory is being conducted.
