Former Frankfort Village Police Officer accused of possessing stolen gun

By WKTV News

YORKVILLE, N.Y. (WKTV) - A former Frankfort Village Police Officer who is currently facing charges for allegedly trying to illegally obtain cell phone records on a fellow officer is now facing new charges in an unrelated incident.

On Thursday, February 23, 2012, New York State Police charged Daniel Herrman, 39, of Yorkville with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Herrman, who is a former officer with the Village of Frankfort Police Department, is alleged to have possessed an unregistered and stolen .40 caliber Glock pistol in the Town of Floyd. State Police said the pistol was the property of the Frankfort Police Department that was reported as stolen.

Herrman was arraigned in the Town of Floyd Court and posted bail at the time.

New York State Police were assisted by the Village of Yorkville Police Department in the investigation.

Herrman has been in Herkimer County Court in recent months in a separate incident - being accused of trying to illegally obtain cell phone records of a then-fellow Frankfort Village Officer who had gotten into a fight with then-Chief Steve Conley.

During those court appearances, Herrman said that he was looking into the cell phone records at the request of Frankfort Village Mayor Frank Morocco.
