An ex-con was arraigned Saturday after being caught sneaking into at least one city jail.

According to news reports, Matthew Matagrano, 36, used a phony gold shield Thursday to gain access to the Manhattan Detention Center. He then reportedly spent over seven hours smoking and conversing with inmates, and also stole a walkie-talkie.

Matagrano, a convicted sex offender, may have similarly entered the jail on Rikers Island.
