Police are again shifting the focus of their search for two convicted murderers who escaped from a maximum-security prison in northern New York three weeks ago.

Hundreds of law enforcement officers have spent most of the past week concentrating on a heavily wooded area 20 miles west of Clinton Correctional Facility, where David Sweat and Richard Matt broke out June 6. Authorities say DNA evidence confirmed the fugitives had been inside a hunting camp near the hamlet of Mountain View.

By Friday morning, fewer officers were around the hamlet while others were searching a few miles north in the town of Malone, near the Canadian border.

A small contingent of New York state troopers is stationed along power lines in the town, and motorists have to pass through a checkpoint.

New York state prison officials say the corrections officer charged after the escape of two convicted murderers has been suspended without pay.

Gene Palmer's suspension from his $72,644-a-year job comes after he was arrested Wednesday night on charges of promoting prison contraband, tampering with evidence and official misconduct.

Palmer has told investigators he provided paint, tools and prison catwalk access to Clinton Correctional Facility inmates Richard Matt and David Sweat, who escaped June 6. But the 57-year-old veteran guard says he had no idea they were planning to escape.

Before the charges came down, Palmer was suspended with pay from his job at the northern New York prison.

He is free on $25,000 bail.
