Alleged victim of Falls truck break-in arrested on old warrant

NIAGARA FALLS – A LaSalle-area man got a close look from police Saturday after reporting his truck had been broken into overnight.

John T. Wheeler, 48, of 79th Street was arrested after police learned that he was wanted on a 5-year-old warrant alleging failure to appear in court.

Wheeler had claimed that tools worth $3,000, including drill guns and a chainsaw, were stolen from his truck before 9 a.m., police said.
