MALONE — A Bronx man recently released from Bare Hill Correctional Facility is in Franklin County Jail awaiting possible extradition to Pennsylvania.
Andrew R. Perez, 24, finished serving a 3½-year state-prison sentence for second-degree criminal possession of a weapon on Nov. 28, but State Police had an outstanding warrant on him as a fugitive from justice from Pennsylvania.
He was arraigned on Nov. 15 before County Court Judge Robert G. Main Jr. who ordered Perez held without bail until Dec. 13 when he waived his right to extradition during a second court appearance, State Police said.
He remains in County Jail without bail while Pennsylvania authorities decide if they want him back to face prosecution.
