NIAGARA FALLS – Copper and brass items worth about $3,000 were stolen from a Fairfield Avenue business in an overnight burglary, police said Saturday.

Investigators believe that break-in at MGM Electrical Supply was through a second-story window between 6:30 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. Saturday. Among items stolen were $800 in carbide tooling bits, authorities said. Police went to the scene on a burglary-in-progress call but determined noises emanating from the rear of the building were being made by a city streets crew working nearby.
