TROY, N.Y. -- The eyes of the world have been fixed on Dannemora.
Not so much on the Capital Region.
"I don't feel threatened by it down here, but I feel sorry for the people who are living in that area," said one North Greenbush resident.
But in a matter of hours, the Capital Region has become part of the prison break saga. At least for now, after the woman who allegedly helped the two killers escape is locked up in Troy.
"Definitely kind of creepy having her right down the road," said Hadley resident Jonathan Evans.
After her arraignment late Friday night, Joyce Mitchell, a 51-year-old prison seamstress, was moved to Rensselaer County Jail at the request of the Clinton County Sheriff.
Police say she befriended convicted killers Richard Matt and David Sweat and provided the two with drill bits and hacksaw blades to make their escape.
The search continues two weeks later, and residents seem to all want the same thing.
"The story's going to come out, once everything is said and done," said North Greenbush resident Russhied Bootman. "Hopefully everybody gets prosecuted and we get these guys back where they belong."
"Ultimately have them caught and put back in jail, yeah absolutely," said Evans.
