Insurance agent tips off victim of car theft

NIAGARA FALLS – A call from an insurance company alerted a Centre Avenue woman to the theft of her car, police said Sunday.

The victim told police that she received the call from her insurer on Friday about an accident on Pine Avenue involving her vehicle. It was then that she learned her 2011 Hyundai was missing from the parking lot behind her home. She told police she believes the vehicle had been stolen earlier in the week, when she was hospitalized briefly.
