Attorney: Scotia business owner set up by police informant

SCOTIA -- An attorney for Donald Andrews, who was cleared of several felony drug charges in April, released surveillance video Tuesday supposedly showing a police informant setting up his client.

Attorney Kevin Luibrand said the video from late March shows the unidentified informant pulling a bag of cocaine from the back of his pants, placing it on the counter and photographing it as evidence. Schenectady County Sheriff’s deputies later arrested Andrews on charges he was selling drugs.

The charges against Andrews were dropped in mid-April after deputies and the Schenectady County District Attorney’s office reviewed the video. Andrews is now planning to sue the county.

District Attorney Robert Carney was unable to go on camera with CBS 6, but said this informant was used in at least seven cases in Schenectady County. He added while he thinks this is an isolated incident, they are reviewing the cases.

Schenectady County Sheriff Dominic Dagostino declined an interview because of pending litigation.

A shop employee said Andrews is on vacation out of the country. He did not respond to an online message seeking comment.
