PRESS RELEASE  -  March 7th, 2016


   SP Fonda BCI received a tip via Mohawk Valley Crimestoppers of possible drug activity in eastern Montgomery County. Based on some of this information, SP Fonda patrols were able to make a traffic stop on one of the suspected vehicles for a Vehicle and Traffic Law violation. Investigation after the stop led to the discovery of 100 envelopes of Heroin (approx. 5 grams).
   Arrested were Bruce E. St Pierre, 32 and Justin R. Krutz, 36 both of Amsterdam, NY.  Both subjects were charged with Felony Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 3rd degree (intent to sell).  St Pierre was also ticketed for Driving While Ability Impaired/drugs.
   Both were charged in the Town of Glenville and remanded for a future court date in Schenectady County Court.
