Carl Perryman arraigned
(Page 2 of 2)
“Many of the guys we arrested are never going to get out,” Vafeades said. “And it takes time to build a strong case like that. When you lock somebody up — for, say, assault — you arrest them with probable cause and put them away. And they might not even do jail time. But when you lock somebody up and you want to put them away for 20 years, you need to build a strong, strong case. Informants, intelligence, surveillance — all of these things come into play, and it’s very time consuming.”
Vafeades said that the Rockville Centre police first reached out to the FBI and the Long Island Gang Taskforce in 2010 when Charles Gennario became commissioner. The RVCPD worked as a team with the FBI agents over the years to build the case, and they are still working.
Gennario thanked U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch and her staff for their assistance in the indictment. Lynch’s office will be handling the prosecution of Perryman.
“Carl Perryman has been a dangerous individual living amongst us for a long time,” Gennario said. “It was a top priority for our members to remove him from the streets. His indictment has certainly made us safer. I want to commend my detectives and the FBI, who have worked tirelessly in bringing this individual to justice. It’s been a long-term investigation that has finally paid dividends.”
