On August 3, 2020, at 2:00am, Deputy Darryl Kroening was patrolling Niagara Falls Boulevard when he noticed a new Chevrolet Silverado at David Chevrolet, 10225 Niagara Falls Boulevard, with stone blocks underneath an axle.

After entering lot, Kroening observed a subject running west bound through the lot. Kroening checked the vicinity and soon located the subject, identified as Donnell Parker, 40, of Niagara Falls, hiding inside a vehicle with another subject, Clarence Brown, 37,of Niagara Falls.

After interviewing both subjects and locating lug nuts and wheel caps in the vehicle, both were arrested. Significant damage had also been done to the tires and rims of the Silverado during the attempted theft.

Parker was subsequently charged with Attempted Grand Larceny 4th Degree (E felony), Auto Stripping 3rd (A misdemeanor), Criminal Possession of Stolen Property 5th (A misdemeanor), Criminal Tampering 3rd (B misdemeanor), and Criminal Mischief 2nd (D felony).

Brown was charged with Criminal Possession of Stolen Property 5th degree (A misdemeanor). Both were processed at the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office and turned over to Niagara Falls Police because they each had unrelated outstanding warrants out of their department. Parker and Brown have a court appearance on August 10, 2020 at 9:00a.m. in Niagara Town Court.
