New York State Police investigators in the Hudson Valley are seeking the public’s assistance as they search for a woman busted for bringing heroin into the Downstate Correctional Facility and never appeared in court to answer the charges.

An alert was issued by police from the Wappinger barrack regarding 28-year-old Amanda Murphy, who is wanted on charges that include promoting prison contraband, criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of a hypodermic instrument dating back to an incident nearly three years ago.

Police said that Murphy is wanted by New York State Police and the Town of Fishkill Court following her arrest in July 2015 when she attempted to bring a hypodermic instrument with the heroin into the correctional facility. When she failed to appear for her court appearance in December last year, a bench warrant was issued for her arrest.

Murphy’s last known address was in Poughkeepsie. Police described her as a 5-foot-4 woman with blonde hair and blue eyes. She weighed approximately 135 pounds at the time of her arrest.

Anyone with information regarding Murphy’s whereabouts have been asked to contact state police investigators by calling (845) 677-7300 or emailing CrimeTip@troopers.ny.gov.
