A search of the place also turned up evidence tying Murray to the LukOil robbery. According to information released at the time, a heavily built bearded man walked into the Lukoil Mini Mart on Main Street in Gloversville just before dawn March 26 brandishing a box cutter.
He got away with $200 in cash, fleeing south on foot in the direction of South Main Street or East Eleventh Avenue. At the time police notified the Kingsborough School and area businesses, then canvassed the area.
They found nothing in the first days of the search, but eventually located Murray.
Murray was arrested on charges of grand larceny and third degree robbery.
Also charged Tuesday morning were Tammy Young and Shameka Worley, who were living with Murray. They were each charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and endangering the welfare of a child.
The endangering charges stem from Worley's two year old daughter being present during the sale of cocaine and use of heroin.
