US man accused of sneaking back into jail
New York: Inmates who spend time in a jail cannot wait to get away, but this ex-con thinks otherwise!
Authorities in the US have accused a former inmate of the Rikers Island jail in New York City of sneaking back into the prison.
The Yonkers man who snuck onto Rikers Island by allegedly impersonating a Department of Correction (DOC) employee with the help of a fake shield and ID card - and even moved inmates between cells - was busted Saturday, `The New York Post` reported.
Thirty-six-year old Matthew Matagrano was arrested last night at a DOC facility.
The DOC did not notice until Thursday that Matagrano - who had access to Rikers for at least a week - had been entering the facility.
He raised the suspicions of Rikers guards when he moved inmates from one cell to another, but he was not collared at that time, a law-enforcement source said.
The authorities are yet to determine Matagrano`s exact reasons for entering the jails.
The convicted sex offender last made headlines in 2004 when he used Department of Education ID to sneak into a Queens school and look through confidential student records.
