PENDLETON – A 67-year-old man said Monday that a Coke bottle filled with $300 worth of pennies was stolen from a locked room in his basement in the 6100 block of Campbell Boulevard sometime between noon Saturday and 6 p.m. Sunday.

The man told Niagara County sheriff’s deputies that this is the second time it has happened and said he suspects a family member.

The victim said the door was kicked in and noted that the large bottle which is heavy, would likely need two persons to carry it.
