Home confinement for former Erie County Sheriff’s deputy

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A former Erie County Sheriff’s deputy will spend the next six months confined to his home after being convicted of being an unlawful user of a controlled substance in possession of a firearm.

Thomas Blajszczak was employed by the sheriff’s office in November and December of 2009 when he was supplied cocaine for his personal use. At the time, he owned and was in possession of his service revolver.

The 44-year-old Lancaster man also admitted giving his cocaine supplier, Jose De Leon, at least one box of 9mm and one box of .45 caliber ammunition.

Blajszczak was recorded on a court-authorized wiretap discussing the amount of money he owed De Leon.
