Vehicle damage in an attempt to hot wire

NIAGARA FALLS – The steering column was damaged and the gear shifts were found stripped Wednesday in what appears to have been an attempt to hot wire a 1996 Chevrolet Blazer. The owner said he thinks someone stole it and then replaced it.

The 74-year-old owner said the Blazer had been parked in the alley in the rear of an address in the 2700 block of Pierce Avenue and the damage happened sometime between Saturday and Wednesday.

Damage was listed at $200.
