The new year is not even two weeks old and there has already been a string of cars that have been stolen. Just this week, Niagara County Deputies arrested a few underage thieves who stole a Kia and took it for a joy ride through the county. There is a new push to prevent these thefts across Western New York.

Here in Buffalo, many will recall the fatal crash that took place on The 33 last year involving a stolen KIA vehicle. It was one of the worst we have seen in years and it spurred many agencies to give out locks to those who own KIAs. Hamburg, New York is now offering those wheel locks as well.

These will be available on a first come, first saved basis.

If you are an owner of a Kia vehicle model years 2011 - 2021 with a kay start ignition and you are a Town of Hamburg Resident, you may pick up the steering wheel lock anti theft device at the Town of Hamburg Police station between 8 am and 4pm.

Thankfully, nobody was hurt in the latest KIA theft that had deputies trying to stop those who stole a car.

For those who live in Southern Erie County, there is a new mobile DMV that will be popping up in the Springville area over the next couple of weeks. It will certainly be a convenience to those who work and live south of Buffalo.
