OTB bettor loses keys and car

It was an unlucky Friday afternoon for one man at a Delaware Avenue betting parlor, according to a Buffalo police report.

The man told police he went to make a bet at the Off-Track Betting location at 2228 Delaware Ave. about 5:30 p.m. Friday and left his keys and coffee on a table.

He returned three minutes later to find his keys and his four-door, black 2003 Mercury LeSabre gone.

Northwest District police were assigned to investigate the apparent car theft.

It’s unclear how the man’s bet turned out.
