Swindler Bernard Madoff was temporarily moved to a prison in Atlanta from New York and was in transit to yet another facility on Tuesday, a U.S. official said.

A spokeswoman at the Federal Bureau of Prisons said Madoff "had left Atlanta and was in transit" after U.S. prison records showed that the disgraced financier was taken to the United States Penitentiary in Atlanta, Georgia, from his New York jail cell.

Prison officials in New York and Washington declined comment on reports by the Wall Street Journal and CNBC that Madoff was going to serve his effective life term at a medium security prison in Butner, North Carolina. The prison is an eight-hour drive from New York.
