NEWFANE – When the fog cleared, the car was no longer stolen.

Niagara County sheriff’s deputies said Saturday that a man reported his 1997 Nissan stolen overnight from his Jockey Road residence, claiming he left the keys in the car and the doors unlocked.

However, later that day, the man canceled the report, deputies said, claiming the car was parked at a restaurant in Wilson, where he forgot to take medication and drank too much. Friends drove him home, he added.
