WEST SENECA, NY - Police found no trace of a thief who gave them the slip Monday night at the Harlem Road bridge over the Buffalo Creek.
Police say they stopped a man there who had just stolen cookies and beer from a nearby Tops, and the man jumped into the water.
Police shut down the road near the bridge and called in the Buffalo Police Underwater Recovery Team to search the water for a few hours, but couldn't find anything.
They're not sure if the man got away or drowned.
The plunge from the bridge to the water is about 30 feet, and the water is only a few feet deep there.
