Orchard Park man charged after making threats on social media while holding a gun

An Orchard Park man accused of posting threats on social media while brandishing a firearm was arraigned Thursday in State Supreme Court.

Dino Bruscia, 25, was charged with one count of criminal possession of a weapon, a felony. He also was charged with one count of aggravated harassment, according to Erie County District Attorney John J. Flynn.

Bruscia posted threats to another person on social media while brandishing a firearm, according to Flynn, and three different agencies worked to identify and locate him. A search warrant led to Bruscia’s arrest and the recovery of physical evidence.

Bruscia faces a maximum of 15 years in prison. He is scheduled to reappear in court on March 14.
