Heroin has been in the headlines locally almost every night this week -- and with good reason. Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple sys the drug problem is plaguing his county and he's sick of it.
"It's super addictive, it's super potent and needless to say it's driving a lot of our crime," Apple said.
The latest in a long line of arrests stemming from heroin he says, Nick DeSanctis. He was charged with assault following a drug-related stabbing in a home on Pleasant Street in Voorheesville Wednesday night. Authorities say they then found 410 bags of heroin at the Colonie Towers apartments where DeSanctis lived. Two nights ago, Mazene Lacy of Albany was busted, accused of stashing 470 bags of the deadly drug in his home.
