$26,000 Reward Offered in Toys R Us Murder

HAMBURG, NY-- A $26,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who killed a Toys R Us manager last month.

Toys R Us is putting up $25,000 and CrimeStoppers added $1,000 to the reward.

Police investigators say a suspect entered the Hamburg Toys R Us store on June 29th around 5am, and disabled the security system before attacking store manager Laurence Wells with a sharp object.

A hat, believed to have been left at the scene by the suspect, contained a DNA, but it did not match anyone in the current DNA database.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at (716) 867-6161 or www.gbmcrimestoopers.com or the Town of Hamburg Police at (716) 648-5111 ext. 2502.

Parking Tickets Given Out at Bennett Beach

HAMBURG, N.Y. -- It can sometimes be hard to find a spot to park at the beach, but a family from Evans told us they got a ticket for parking on the grass at Bennett Beach over the weekend, and they claim a no parking sign went up after they got out of their truck.

The Erie County Parks, Recreation and Forestry Commissioner says another sign was already there.

"A John Deere park vehicle came racing up alongside of us, stopped right in front of us, got out, grabbed the sledge hammer and the sign and started pounding it into the grass and started rudely said we cannot park here on the grass," says an Evans father of two who does not want us to reveal his identity.

He took a picture of the Parks Department employee installing a new no parking sign Saturday in the grass at Bennett Beach.

Natural, Balanced and Beyond: Making Sense of Dog Food Labels

 

(Welcome to our pet column, courtesy of Pet Connection Programs Inc. of Marilla. We post a new article each week, so be sure to check back on a regular basis!)

Dogs are man's best friend, so it's only natural to want to give him the best care, from the veterinarian he goes to right down to the food you put in his bowl every day. But in a world filled with an ever-expanding array of choices, it can be hard to make sense of it all. However, getting to know the meaning behind the labels you see at the pet store will make it easier to give your four-legged friend the food he deserves.
