Elmira Correctional Facility Under Lockdown

     Elmira Correctional Facility was under lockdown Friday for an unknown period of time. After contacting local and state officials we received a statement from Tom Mailey the Supervision Director at the Department of Corrections and Community saying, "Officials received anonymous information that led to the discovery of an inmate with several weapons."
     The facility was then ordered locked down by Acting Commissioner Anthony Annucci, to allow officials to conduct an investigation to determine if the information was true.
