NIAGARA FALLS – Police are investigating the theft of three shotguns, two rifles and ammunition from a safe in house in the 1700 block of Falls Street. Police said a woman told them Monday that she had moved out of the house after the heat was turned off but has been returning to the vacant building to feed a dog and a cat. The weapons were valued at $2,605.

Investigators said they found the broken safe and pet feces throughout the house and contacted the building inspector to consider condemnation proceedings.
