There's been another arrest for an Albany man who is no stranger to police.
Marquis Dixon, 20, is accused passing a counterfeit $20 bill at a Glenmont gas station.
Dixon was sentenced to nine years in prison for stealing a pair of sneakers from someone at gunpoint when he was 16 years old. He was released after a Court of Appeals ruled that sentence too harsh.
Since then, Dixon has been arrested several times, including for allegedly threatening his mom with a steak knife.
He’s charged with petit larceny and criminal possession of a forged instrument.
