Handyman fails to do the job after helping himself to loot

NIAGARA FALLS – A man hired to rearrange furniture by an elderly LaSalle woman not only didn’t do the job but stole items worth $1,100, police said.

Among items missing from the woman’s bedroom are several bottles of prescription medications, a bag of five gold necklaces, two gold bracelets, a silver ring and $40 in cash from a purse, police said. The thief, police added, was paid with a $75 personal check that has since been canceled. Police said they are seeking to question the suspect.
