Deputies charge man with theft of tires
Erie County sheriff's deputies Tuesday charged a man suspected of stealing tires from new vehicles at several area car dealerships.
Paul J. Andrzejak, 45, currently an inmate of the Erie County Holding Center, where he is serving time in an unrelated case, was charged with felony criminal possession of stolen property, deputies said Wednesday.
Andrzejak is accused of taking four tires and rims from vehicles in the West-Herr Jeep Dealership in Orchard Park last summer.
He is also awaiting sentencing on several other criminal and traffic law charges in Springville and Grand Island, police said.
Letting boy eat dope sends man to prison
MAYVILLE -- A Jamestown man was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison for letting a 4-year-old boy eat a mixture of cocaine and heroin from his pocket on Sept. 18.
Chautauqua County District Attorney David Foley said Raymond Medina, 25, of West 14th Street, was sentenced Monday by Chautauqua County Court Judge John Ward. Medina pleaded guilty in December to criminal possession of a controlled substance and reckless endangerment.
Medina was walking with the child, his girlfriend's son, when the boy grabbed what he thought was candy out of Medina's pants pocket and ate it. When the boy lost consciousness, Medina rushed him back to his home on West 14th Street, police said.
The boy was revived in WCA Hospital's emergency room, then transferred to Women and Children's Hospital, Buffalo.
