BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - An ex convict turned debt collector who's accused of using strong arm tactics to make people pay up, faced arraignment Thursday in Erie County Court.
Prosecutors said they found several handguns and an AK 47 in the home or business of Tobias Boyland.
Investigators said Boyland would often pose as a police officer, threatening to have debtors arrested because they had fallen behind on payments.
He pleaded not guilty Thursday but had little to say afterward.
Boyland faces up to 50 years in prison if convicted.
