The Coeymans Police Department has stepped up its effort to fight illegal drugs.
Chief Gregory Darlington and other town leaders held a press conference Thursday morning to tell us what their CANT unit has been doing lately.
CANT stands for Coeymans Anti-Narcotics Team.
“It became alarming and the members of my department came to me with this task force and desire to help address the issue. It was spearheaded by seven members of our department,” said Chief Gregory Darlington of Coeymans Police.
In recent months, Coeymans Police have arrested five drug suspects.
They say they also seized 16 pounds of marijuana, along with guns, cash, cars and other drugs.
