A Lockport woman says she was robbed of more than $6,000 earlier this week when her son was looking to buy a used car from a man.
The victim told Niagara County Sheriff's deputies a man she knew of as "Ace" came to her trailer on Robin Drive and asked use the bathroom, which was in the back of the home.
The woman's purse was on the bed and contained an envelope with cash. The man selling the car left quickly, and the woman later realized the money was gone. She also told deputies there were no other people that could have taken the money.
The case was sent to the Criminal Investigation Bureau.
