Rockland County man arrested for selling illegal guns
NEW CITY – A Nyack man was arrested for selling weapons as part of an ongoing operation to remove illegal weapons from the streets of Rockland County.

The weapons included two loaded 9 mm Taurus pistols and a loaded special revolver of caliber Taurus .38.
Jemison was charged by a grand jury with criminal possession of a gun and two cases of criminal possession of a firearm.
