NIAGARA FALLS – A furnace, water heater and thousands of dollars worth of copper pipe were stolen from a vacant bank-owned building at 819 Armory Place sometime in the past two weeks, police said.

The property manager told police Wednesday that someone removed plywood from a steel basement access, then smashed the entry door’s glass window. The $3,000 furnace and $1,000 water heater were stolen from the basement and $2,000 worth of copper was cut out from several locations throughout the building, according to police.
