Rockland County District Attorney Thomas E. Walsh II announced the arrest of Darren Jemison, 36, of Nyack, NY for selling guns as part of an ongoing operation to get illegal guns off the streets of Rockland County.

In January of 2020, the Rockland County Drug Task Force and Town of 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 Darren Jemison sold several firearms to an individual. These illegal gun sales all took place in the area of the Nyack Plaza housing complex. The firearms purchased included 2 loaded Taurus 9mm pistols and a loaded Taurus .38 special revolver. Jemison was indicted by a Rockland County Grand Jury on charges of Criminal Possession of a Weapon 2nd, Criminal Sale of a Firearm 3rd, and Criminal Possession of a Firearm. In December 2020, an arrest warrant was signed by Rockland County Court Judge Russo.

“The coordination between our local, state and federal law enforcement partners in getting illegal firearms off our streets and out of the hands of criminals is paramount in our efforts to end the gun violence that puts our community in danger.  We will actively pursue any leads regarding illegal guns and encourage any person with information to contact the police department or the Tip411 hotline”, said Orangetown Police Chief Donald Butterworth.

Jemison surrendered to the Orangetown Police on April 8, 2021 and was turned over to the Rockland County Sheriffs Office on an active arrest warrant for listed charges. Jemison was arraigned in Rockland County Court.

Rockland County District Attorney Tom Walsh said,” As we see an increase in gun violence in our County, we have to commend the hard work of these officers who are out there combating this very dangerous issue. We will not tolerate gun violence in Rockland County.”

NEW CITY, NY – Rockland County Executive Ed Day wrote to Chairwoman Tina Stanford of the New York State Board of Parole to request that the Board deny parole to child killer Robert McCain.

“Let us not forget that this man, Robert McCain, was the initial assailant of Paula Bohovesky, caving her head in with a piece of concrete before sexually assaulting her and leaving her to die. This monster does not deserve to walk free on our streets while our community still suffers from the loss and pain he caused. He committed murder, a crime of permanency, and should be permanently in jail,” wrote County Executive Day in the letter.
