Jamestown police asking for public's help in finding Silver Necklaces stolen during day-light theft at Jewelry Store...

A suspect has been arrested... but, Jamestown police are searching for about $200,000 in silver necklesses swiped during a brazen, day-light theft at a jewelry store.  City Police Captain Bob Samuelson says the alleged suspect... 28 year-old Darius Coleman (picture left) of Jamestown... walked into Carlson's Jewelry at 31 North Main Street about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.  Samuelson says Coleman allegedly told a store clerk that he wanted to see the necklaces... which were on a rack... because he was interested in buying one.  But... he says once she provided that, he quickly grabbed the rack, which contained 18 to 20 necklaces, and ran off.  Samuelson says Coleman ran south on North Main Street, and got up on the railroad tracks before he was finally caught on East Fifth Street.  He says they had enough evidence to arrest Coleman... and, he was taken into custody.  However... he says Coleman did not have any of the stolen property in his posession.  Samuelson says they're looking for the rack... and, the stolen necklaces.  He says a simple "T" rack was involved... but, was likely discarded along the way.  Samuelson says he believes Coleman "handed-off" the jewelry to an accomplice... and, this was another issue of people stealing items they can sell to get money to buy drugs.  If you have any information on the theft... or have seen any sterling silver necklaces in suspicious circumstances... call Jamestown police at 483-7537... or the JPD Tip-line at 483-TIPS... that's 483-8477.

Two county lawmakers express concern about proposed appointment to IDA Board...

Two Chautauqua County lawmakers are voicing concern about an appointment County Executive Greg Edwards is making to the Industrial Development Agency Board.  Edwards has chosen Kathleen Geise of Fredonia to fill the term of Michael Piazza.  Geise is the wife of Mark Guise who is the Deputy Director of County's Planning Department.  Dunkirk Democratic Legislator Keith Ahlstrom voiced his concern today.  Ahlstrom says he's the spouse of "somebody who directly reports to Mr. (Bill) Daly... which he calls an "in-your face" kind of conflict.  However... Edwards defends his selection.  He believes Geise would be a good addition to the board since she is a female, from the North County area... and, has significant experience in the area work force development.  The Busti Republican doesn't believe there is a conflict.  Edwards says Mark Geise works for the county's Department of Planning and Economic Development... which is also headed up by Daly... but, not affiliated with the IDA.  However... Cassadaga-area Republican John Runkle says, "even though it may not be, it smacks of impropriety and is wrong."  Both Runkle and Ahlstrom intend to vote against the appointment which will appear as a resolution during tonight's session.

Bills fans not happy with new NFL Ban on seat cushions...

The National Football League's ban on seat cushions is hitting some Buffalo Bills fans right where it hurts.  In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings... NFL owners approved a series of new security measures for stadiums starting this season.  They include banning fans from bringing seat cushions into games for fear they could be used to hide explosive devices.  Bringing seat cushions to games is a longstanding tradition in Buffalo, especially for many older fans who want the extra insulation during rainy and cold weather.  One... 96 year-old season ticketholder Ray Deibel tells The Buffalo News he supports tighter security but calls the seat cushion ban ``terrible'' and ``ridiculous.''  The NFL says Buffalo and Green Bay will allow Styrofoam seating pads, as long as they have no covers or pockets.
