Smuggled Suboxone Leads to In-Jail Arrests

Two inmates at the Delaware County Jail were arrested on charges of receiving smuggled drugs on June 15 and an arrest warrant has been obtained for a third inmate, according to a press release issued by the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office.

Chad M. Ostrander, 33, of Grand Gorge, is accused of bringing burprenorphine into the jail, which was later distributed by inmates Randy L. Condon Jr., 32, and Justin D. Crandall, 30, both from Sidney.

Ostrander and Crandall were charged with first-degree promoting prison contraband, fourth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and fifth degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. Crandall is being held at the Delaware County Jail on $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond. Ostrander is being held at the Delaware County Jail without bail, awaiting a further court appearance.

An arrest warrant, charging Condon with identical charges, was issued on June 15. Condon is in the custody of the New York State Department of Corrections, according to the Sheriff’s Office, and is expected to be arrested on the warrant.

Of the arrests, Delaware County Sheriff Craig DuMond said he is proud of the work of his staff in detecting and removing drugs from the jail.
