Bouncy Ball bandits

Police are looking into a theft from a restaurant in the 700 block of Portage Road. An employee told officers that three suspects, two men and a woman, were using a vending machine, known as the Bouncy Ball Dispenser, inside the restaurant at 4:40 p.m. Tuesday. The man said the woman in the group began yelling about the machine taking her money and all three suspects began to hit, kick and bang the machine. The suspects were able to break into the machine and made off with an undetermined amount of cash, all in quarters.

Don’t forget the bagels

A Falls woman was arrested at the Seneca Niagara Casino after security officers said they caught her taking taking three bagels, a doughnut, two apples,12 Timbits, a large smoothie and a large ice tea from the Tim Horton’s Cafe there without paying.

Police said they also found almost a gram of heroin in Robinson’s possession while she was being booked at the city jail.


Why they call it dope

When you’re on probation, police officers and probation officials are likely to drop around anytime and want to search the house. It’s a bad idea to keep illegal drugs there.

Two Lockport residents face drug charges after police assisted in a search of their home last week as part of a routine probation procedure. Nicole L. Jordan, 34, 97 Willow St., Apt. 3, was charged with third- and fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, while her husband, Bryan Jordan, 36, was charged with third-, fifth- and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

While the Jordans’ apartment was searched, a patrol officer checked a makeup bag in a bathroom and found packages containing suspected cocaine. A black digital scale, a spoon and a knife were also found, the report said. And when Bryan Jordan was searched, the officer found a quantity of suspected cocaine tucked into a pocket on his shorts, the report said.
