Troy's new K-9 officer helps in crack cocaine bust

TROY -- A Cohoes man is facing felony drug charges after Troy Police say they found a large amount of crack cocaine inside his car.
Around 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Troy Police responded to reports of drug activity in the O'Neil Apartments parking lot at 2121 Sixth Avenue.
Troy Special Operations Section Detectives staked out the parking lot and, following hours of surveillance, observed suspicious activity by a car that was parked in the lot.
When the car drove away, police pulled over the driver, 41-year-old Michael Bates.
With the assistance of the Rensselaer County Department of Probation and Troy PD's newest member, K-9 Officer Obie, more than 4 ounces and over 40 bumps, or little baggies, of crack cocaine were found inside the vehicle.
Bates was charged with felony criminal possession of a controlled substance.
He was arraigned and remanded to Rensselaer County Jail without bail.
