Village of Airmont deputy mayor indicted on dozens of felony charges
Village of Airmont Deputy Mayor Brian Downey was indicted Friday night on dozens of felony charges.
Rockland County detectives and federal agents searched Downey's home under a warrant after receiving information about a package intercepted at U.S. Customs that contained a firearm silencer.
They found over 100 firearms - the majority of which were illegally manufactured -- and numerous false federal law enforcement credentials.
The charges come as part of a federal, county and local investigation into the purchasing of illegal gun parts.
