State Police Make Arrest for Assault Weapon Sale

By Staff Report | News

MOREAU - William G. Greene, 51, of Pine Road, Moreau, was charged with the misdemeanors of unlawful transfer of an assault weapon and disposing of a weapon without a NICS background check. The New York State Police in Wilton arrested Green for the alleged unlawful transfer of an assault weapon on Tuesday, April 16.

In response to a NYS Gun Tip Line call, an investigation was initiated regarding an assault weapon being offered for sale on a Facebook page for gun enthusiasts.

An undercover State Police Investigator responded to the posting, eventually meeting with the person selling the rifle and ultimately purchasing the weapon.

The weapon is a RGuns .223-5.56 caliber assault style rifle with a pistol grip, which meets the definition of an assault weapon.

Greene was issued an appearance ticket for a future court date in the Town of Moreau Court.
