Over $15,000 worth of road construction materials taken in Falls

NIAGARA FALLS – A Catco site superintendent told police Monday that spreaders, steel reinforcing bars and plates were stolen from a site on 60th Street at Buffalo Avenue sometime between 2:30 p.m. Friday and 6:30 a.m. Saturday.

He said the 20, four foot spreaders, were valued at $8,000; and the 70 plates valued at $4,500 were under a concrete barrier weighing about four tons, while the 50 bars, valued at $2,750; were held in place under a half inch road plate weighing about 3,600 pounds.

The superintendent told police that he was unsure if the suspects were using equipment at the site to move objects to take the materials. The total loss was $15,250.
