Lockport police conducted a dive in the Erie Canal near the Widewaters area Saturday in search of stolen property.
The recovery dive, in conjunction with the State Police Special Operations Dive Team, was an effort to bolster several ongoing investigations into property thefts across the city, Detective Lt. Scott D. Seekins said.
The Detective and Patrol divisions participated in the dive, the results of which were not disclosed. Seekins said multiple arrests are expected soon as a result of the investigation.
Detectives encouraged anyone with information on criminal activity, suspicious people or the location of stolen property to contact the Police Department at 433-7700.
