MASSENA - State police here found a wanted man with a little help from his 4-year-old daughter.Sure, Murphy can be a pain at times, but I'm pretty confident that if and when Obama gets a second term and initiates a nationwide gun round-up, should they come knocking on my door and I deny having any guns, Murphy probably won't reveal where they're actually hidden.
Police arrested John A. Colby, 30, of Massena, at about 7:30 a.m. Sunday and charged him with third-degree bail jumping, second-degree obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest, according to a press release.
Troopers arrived at Colby's 12 Stearns St. home with bench warrants from Stockholm and Norfolk town courts. Initially, Colby's girlfriend - 27-year-old Jessica L. Smith of Massena - denied knowing his whereabouts. That's when Colby's daughter reportedly told police, "Daddy is scared and hiding in the attic."
Smith refused to comply with troopers, police said, and "actively resisted" when they tried to go into the attic and take Colby into custody. She was subsequently charged with second-degree obstructing governmental administration.
Colby was arraigned in Norfolk town court and remanded to St. Lawrence County Jail in lieu of $1,655 cash bail. He's due to reappear Wednesday morning. Smith was issued an appearance ticket returnable to Massena village court Jan. 31.
