Airmont’s Deputy Mayor, who also serves as a Ramapo deputy building inspector and part-time court officer, has been hit with federal charges on top of the local gun charges filed against him last week. 47 year-old Brian Downey was busted allegedly purchasing a rifle suppression device over the internet. He was arrested earlier this week at his home, stemming from a federal and county investigation into the purchasing of illegal gun parts. He’s charged with multiple counts of Criminal Possession of a Weapon. On Saturday, Rockland County District Attorney Tom Walsh announced Downey was also hit with state and federal charges in the Southern District of New York. He’s now also accused of Possession of Unregistered Firearms and Possession of Federal Badges, Identification Cards, and other Insignia. He was arraigned by Judge Judith McCarthy. He was being held in the Rockland County jail on $250,000 bond. The investigation is on-going. We reached out to Deputy Mayor Downey for comment, but did not hear back.
