Rockland County man arrested for selling illegal guns


NEW CITY – A Nyack man has been arrested for selling guns as part of an ongoing operation to get illegal guns off the streets of Rockland County.

Darren Jemison, 36, surrendered to Orangetown Police on April 8 and was turned over to the sheriff’s office on an active arrest warrant for allegedly selling several firearms to an individual.

In January 2020, the Rockland County Drug Task Force and Orangetown Police began an investigation into the sale of illegal firearms in the Village of Nyack.

The task force conducted several undercover operations during which Jemison sold several firearms. Those gun sales took place in the area of the Nyack Plaza housing complex.

The guns included two loaded Taurus 9mm pistols and a loaded Taurus .38 caliber special revolver.

Jemison was indicted by a grand jury on charges of criminal possession of a weapon and two counts of criminal possession of a firearm.
