FELONY ARRESTS

DANNEMORA — A New York City man was arrested Friday on an indictment from a Clinton County grand jury.

State Police in Dannemora reported that Rickey Murray, 27, formerly of New York City, was released from Clinton Correctional Facility on Friday, only to be arrested again by the New York State Police on an indictment.

Murray was charged with promoting prison contraband and criminal possession of a weapon, both felonies.

The charges stem from an incident that occurred in April at Clinton Correctional.

Murray was arraigned in Clinton County Court before Judge McGill.

He was sent to the Clinton County Jail in lieu of $20,000 cash bail or $40,000 bond.
