  • NYC Cop Making and Selling Guns to Gangsters?

    PLATTEKILL - A police officer with the New York City Department of Environmental Protection has been charged with illegally manufacturing and selling dozens of guns and tipping off a drug suspect about an investigation, state police said Friday.

    Police said they learned about the activities of Gregg Marinelli, 38, of Plattekill, during the cocaine- and fentanyl-trafficking investigation dubbed “Operation: Bread, White and Blues” that resulted in more than two dozen arrests in February, although Marinelli was not charged in that case.

    Prosecutors say Marinelli, a DEP sergeant and team leader of an agency Emergency Service Unit, manufactured dozens of handguns and assault rifles, including a fully automatic assault rifle, in his home and sold them “to individuals who are legally barred from possessing such weapons.” Those customers included members of self-professed outlaw motorcycle clubs, and Marinelli sometimes delivered the guns using his marked DEP police car, prosecutors said.
