Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard reports the arrest of 28-year-old Sarah Szymanski of Cheektowaga on Tuesday following an investigation into a grand larceny complaint.
The victim stated he met the Szymanski Tuesday evening after making arrangements on a social media market place app. In the posting, Szymanski was selling discounted Best Buy gift cards. He explained to the Deputies he gave her $1,450.00 for the gift cards which, were to be used to purchase a laptop. Szymanski entered the Clarence electronics store, purchased a printer then fled in a waiting vehicle; the victim provided the Deputies a description of the vehicle.
Later Tuesday evening, Deputies located Szymanski driving the same vehicle in Cheektowaga and arrested her. She is charged with a felony count of grand larceny-fourth degree, a misdemeanor count of aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle, and a vehicle and traffic law violation for operating a vehicle without a license.
Before the Sheriff’s Office arrest, Szymanski was arrested by Lancaster Police on Tuesday for obstruction of governmental administration, reckless driving, speeding, aggravated unlicensed operation, and failing to stop at a stop sign. She was processed and released on appearance tickets. Prior to the Lancaster arrest, Szymanski was arrested by another local police agency Tuesday and charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle. She was processed and released.
Szymanski was issued appearance tickets for a future appearance in Clarence Town Court following the Sheriff’s arrest.
