Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard reported the arrest Deniro Bly, 21, of Springville, following the investigation of multiple incidents over the past two weeks.
Just after 5 p.m. June 19, detectives located and arrested the suspect, without incident, along Hertel Avenue in the city of Buffalo.
Bly’s arrest ended a search, which began June 17 after the defendant stole liquor from a store on South Cascade Drive in Springville.

June 19 – Felony count of criminal possession of a firearm and criminal possession of stolen property-firearm after detectives executed a search warrant for a vehicle and recovered a stolen firearm from the June 16 burglary.
“The detectives and deputies assigned to this case did an outstanding job in following through with these incidents,” Sheriff Howard said. “They were relentless in pursuing the defendant, locating and arresting him. There is still more work to do, but this is a fine example of how good old police work resulted in the arrest of the prime suspect.”
Bly was being held at the Erie County Holding Center. The Sheriff’s Office continued to investigate other incidents where Bly is a suspect. Additional charges may be filed.
