Buffalo, NY – Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard reports the arrest of David Olejniczak, 27 of Buffalo, when Deputy Stott discovered a large bag of marijuana during a traffic stop for speeding.

The Deputy initiated the stop on Clinton Street in the Town of Marilla Wednesday around 7:15 p.m.  When the Deputy approached the vehicle, he detected a strong odor of marijuana and discovered that the operator’s license had two active suspensions.  Subsequent to the operator’s arrest, Deputy Stott discovered a large plastic bag of marijuana under the driver’s seat of the vehicle.

Olejniczak was charged with speeding, aggravated unlicensed operation, and criminal possession of marijuana weighing more than two ounces and was taken to the Erie County Holding Center pending arraignment.

Upon the defendant’s arrival at the holding center, he was processed and searched for contraband.  The defendant failed to follow Deputies’ orders and kept reaching toward his undergarment.  The subject was asked if he was concealing any banned items and he denied attempting to smuggle anything into the jail.  The Deputies completed a thorough search of the subject and discovered a package containing Suboxone.

Olejniczak had a charge of introducing contraband into a prison place added.  The defendant faces two court appearances, the first in Buffalo City Court and a later appearance in Marilla Town Court on January 28.
