Buffalo Police have made 3 arrests in connection with search warrants that were executed by the Intelligence unit with the assistance of the BPD SWAT team.
The first warrant was executed on December 7 in the 100 block of Gibson Street. Charged with felony criminal possession of a firearm as well as marijuana possession was 19 year old Quantic Matthews of Buffalo.

On December 16 in the 1400 block of Kenmore Ave a second search warrant was executed. Charged with felony criminal possession of a firearm and felony criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third and fourth degree was 34 year old Willie Sykes of Buffalo, who is a convicted felon.

A third warrant was executed on December 19, in the 100 block of Ruhland Ave. Charged with felony criminal possession of a weapon and felony possession of marihuana was 53 year old Jameel Collins of Buffalo, who is also a convicted felon.

Buffalo Police along with the ATF are committed to taking these illegal firearms off the streets of our community. This partnership has led to over 100 illegal guns being confiscated by law enforcement this year alone. Anyone with information on persons who possess illegal handguns is asked to call or text our confidential TIPCALL line at (716) 847-2255.

Thank you to South District Councilman Christopher P. Scanlon for looking out for the men and women of the Buffalo Police Department and city residents. The Police Commissioner’s decision to cut the Narcotics/Vice Unit from night shift and move it to day shift certainly will result in increased drug activity and crime in the city, and drug use related deaths will exceed the historical levels our city is already experiencing. We need common sense approaches to fighting crime and keeping our streets and residents safe. #BuffaloPBA #BfloPBA

Last month, an E-District officer recognized an individual who was wanted on multiple extraditable warrants from North Carolina for violent robbery charges. The individual was confronted by officer and attempted to flee. The officer’s excellent awareness and training helped him make an arrest, without incident, as well as recover an illegal firearm that was on the body of this individual. An incredible and courageous job by this PBA member!

E-District officers were recently alerted to flagrant behavior of an individual displaying what appeared to be firearms while driving. Aware of this high-risk behavior, officers noticed a similar vehicle, same driver making a traffic infraction in the reported neighborhood. Once pulled over, officers noticed firearms in plain view. Working with gun violence unit, two illegal firearms, including one from out of state, were recovered. Thank you to our officers for removing more lethal firearms off our city’s streets.

Two E-District officers responded to a shooting this month and quickly relayed suspect information to other officers, while rendering first aid to the victim until paramedics arrived. Two other officers did see a suspect matching the description attempting to hide and was ultimately apprehended. The suspect was found to be in possession of a firearm that is suspected to be used in the shooting. Incredible job by officers who acted quickly, bravely and applied their skills of first aid and understanding of criminal behavior.

C-District officers recently conducted a routine traffic stop which resulted in the recovery of a firearm, more than $5,000 cash, 1 1/2 ounces of crack cocaine, 1 ounce powder cocaine, and 4 1/2 ounces of heroin/fentanyl. This was a joint effort with intelligence and narcotics. Thank you to our officers for their efforts in the extremely dangerous task of removing lethal firearms and deadly drugs off of Buffalo's streets.
