Nathan Haag
An East Amherst man accused of stealing a bottle of rum from Wine & Liquor Outlet on Transit Road was arrested in the Town of Niagara Friday evening.

According to a report filed by the Niagara County Sheriff's Office, Nathan Haag, 23, 2751 Dodge Road., entered the liquor store around 5 p.m. Friday, took a 1.75L bottle of Bacardi Zombie and concealed it in his clothing before exiting the store without paying.

Two store employees confronted Haag, who then ran out of the store, handed the bottle to one of the employees, and ran north through the parking lot into a wooded area, where the employees lost sight of him.

Approximately five minutes later, Haag was spotted in the parking lot by one of the employees, who went after him again. Haag then ran over to a blue car, got into the driver's seat and left the parking lot at a high rate of speed, nearly striking two vehicles as he was leaving the lot. The employee then called the Sheriff's department with the car's plate.

Patrol went to Haag's address and spoke with his mother, who gave them his cell phone number. Patrol contacted him and asked him to meet. Haag agreed and gave them a Town of Niagara address, but when they went there, there was no one there. Patrol called him again and he stated that he was too busy to meet, and wanted to know if he could meet patrol tomorrow. After a brief discussion, which included Haag confirming that he was at Wine & Liquor Outlet earlier in the day, patrol told Haag that if he didn't turn himself in then, patrol would get a warrant for his arrest. In light of the new information, he decided to turn himself in at the Town of Niagara Police Department.

Haag's vehicle was towed and Haag was into custody and charged with petit larceny. He was remanded to the Niagara County Jail on $500 bail and is due in Town of Lockport Court on Tuesday.
