CLAYTON — David W. Podkowka, 29, of 34718 County Route 4, was sent Tuesday to the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building, Watertown, following his arrest by village police and Jefferson County sheriff’s deputies on a felony charge of first-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.

Bail was set at $5,000 by Clayton Town Justice Clarence F. Giles Jr.
