NIAGARA FALLS – Watches and electronics were stolen in a burglary Wednesday afternoon in the 2700 block of Independence Avenue.

The victim said two watches were stolen, a $300 watch taken from the kitchen table and a $2,500 Rolex taken from the top of a bedroom dresser. Also taken from the dresser top were a 42-inch TV, a change jar and a tablet computer, as well as $200 in cash. The total loss was estimated at $3,910.

The victim said he lives alone and no one else had a key to his house.
