NIAGARA FALLS – A local lawyer, who provides public defender services in the city, was the victim of a break-in over the weekend.

The owner of a building at 1520 Pine Ave., which houses the legal offices of James J. Faso Jr., told police Sunday that someone had sent him a text of a smashed rear window. Employees told police that a laptop was missing, as well as a computer tower, a voice recorder and a safe with old checks. An unidentified padlock, that may have been used to break the window, was found on the floor.

Other filing cabinets appeared to have been rifled through, the employee told police.
