Cheektowaga Police Blotter: Wednesday, December 5, 2018

Cheektowaga first responders were called out to 145 incidents on Wednesday.

8:47 am – A robbery suspect out of Buffalo was pulled over at George Urban and Union. The man was turned over to Buffalo Police and Cheektowaga Police took the child in the car with the suspect to school.

10:10 am – Doyle firefighters were called to Williamstowne Apartments for the smell of smoke in the building. It turned out to be burnt food in one of the apartments.

10:28 am – A “large dog or coyote” was spotted in the Thruway Plaza. The dog control officer was called to the scene. It was a coyote and “not hurting anyone”. So it was left alone. (As small dog owners at the Chronicle, we’re a bit skeptical of this pro-Chupacabra propaganda. We recommend keeping an eye on the little ones when they’re outside.)

6:41 pm – Police were called to the McDonald’s on Union at George Urban. A man and woman were screaming and throwing food at a manager. They were eventually issued refunds and told to leave the store and never return.

7:30 pm – The chickenpocolypse continues on the corner of Walden and Anderson. Police were called to direct traffic by multiple people caught up in the traffic mayhem of Chick-fil-a lovers who were impatiently trying to get their fast food fix.

8:24 pm – A neighbor called to complain about someone revving a vehicle on Raymond Avenue. Apparently, it was so noisy it was making their windows shake. The owner of the car said they were just trying to get the ol’ gal working. They would try for another ten minutes before giving up on the project for the night.

11:07 pm – A driver was arrested for DWI after driving onto a lawn on Anna Court. There were two people in the car. They were checked out for minor injuries, and they declined further treatment.
