CANT Drug Task Force Can and Does
The Coeymans Anti-Narcotics Team, or CANT, was introduced this morning. Chief Greg Darling explained how in just the last few weeks, the team made several arrests and removed countless bags of cocaine, heroin and prescription drugs, as well as weapons, from the street.
He says the problem in town is no greater than anywhere else, but says it's proximity to larger cities makes it a likely destination for dealers. The easy access from Capital Region highways and other modes of transportation have always been a hurdle in the local war on drugs, Darlington says.
CANT is made up of 7 of the department's 15 officers, only 5 of whom are full time.
