LOCKPORT – A Glendale Drive man told Niagara County sheriff’s deputies that while he was sleeping, someone ransacked his apartment and took a $200 bottle of cologne and a white gold chain valued at nearly $1,000.

The victim told deputies that he fell asleep just before 1 a.m. Sunday and awoke three hours later to find that the apartment in the 5700 block of Glendale had been ransacked. He said he also found syringes in the apartment and flushed them down the toilet before deputies arrived.

The man said he had locked his apartment door and was unsure how someone gained entry.

He said he heard nothing, according to investigators.
