U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced the arrest of Matthew R. Zamborowski, 48, for possession of firearms while under a Domestic Violence Order of Protection. If convicted, he faces up to 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.


On May 6, 2024, an Erie County Sheriff’s Deputy stopped Zamborowski on Route 219 for a surrendered license plate. Zamborowski, a New York State Corrections Officer on leave, admitted to carrying a firearm. The deputy confirmed his license issues and discovered an active order of protection against him, requiring the surrender of all firearms. Zamborowski was arrested, and a search revealed five more firearms in his trunk.

The arrest resulted from an investigation by the Erie County Sheriff’s Office and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
