Livingston County: Felony Charge Following Attempt To Purchase Rifle

VILLAGE OF DANSVILLE - Livingston County Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty reports the arrest of Dalton, NY resident on felony charges after an investigation by the Sheriff’s Office. On February 19, 2020 Sheriff’s Deputies arrested and charged 30-year-old Joseph G. Gagne with felony Falsifying Business Records in the 1st Degree and felony Attempted Criminal Purchase or Disposal of a Weapon.
It is alleged that on February 13, 2020 Gagne went to a gun store in the Village of Dansville and attempted to purchase a rifle, which included completing a federal firearms transaction record form. It is further alleged that Gagne had a valid court issued order of protection against him at the time and falsely stated on the form that he did not. The order of protection prohibits Gagne from possessing or purchasing a firearm.
Gange was turned over to Central Booking Deputies at the Livingston County Jail for processing and issued an appearance ticket for the charges as the offenses did not qualify for pre-arraignment detention or for bail to be set under the NYS Justice Reform Act. Gagne is scheduled to return to the Village of Dansville Court at a later date to answer to the charges.
The investigation was conducted by members of the Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division and Criminal Investigations Division.
