TOWN OF LOCKPORT -- A Longcroft Drive man told Niagara County Sheriff's deputies that someone stole a $75 box of candy bars from his wife's car earlier this week.

According the the report filed with NCSO, the man said someone went through his car sometime late Sunday or early Monday, as well, but that nothing appeared to have been taken. He also noted that the candy thief neglected to take a $10 bill that had been inside his wife's car. The glove box and center console of both vehicles had been rummaged thru with some of the property being thrown on through out the vehicle. Several other unlocked vehicles in the neighborhood had also been entered overnight with nothing being removed.

The complainant told patrol that he was outside walking the dog every couple of hours during the night and didn't notice anything suspicious.

sweater with advisor Karen Rahill. (CONTRIBUTED
Members of the DeSales Catholic School Girls Running Club, named “DCS Gotta Blast” by its middle school members are preparing for their first 5K.

The team has been meeting weekly since September to build up to run in the Historic Palace’s Tacky Sweater 5K on Saturday. In addition to the running, their training has included learning more about health and wellness and discussing self esteem.

Seventh-grade student Delaney Adams said, “I didn’t think I’d like running, but through this club it is fun. We all encourage, help and cheer one another on.”

With the physical fitness part down, the girls have been working on decorating their “tacky” sweaters -- or in this case old DeSales sweatshirts.

This running club has about 20 members and is being overseen by DeSales teachers and alumni, Cathy Fraass and Karen Rahill.

DeSales is Eastern Niagara County’s only Catholic School, welcoming students of all faiths in Pre-School through Eighth grade.  For more information call 433-4870, visit www.desalescatholicschool.org or attend their Open House from noon to 2 p.m. Jan. 31.
