Heroin Arrests

Troy Record: Two in Rensselaer arrested for heroin
Tuesday, a search warrant was executed by the Rensselaer County Drug Task Force, the Sheriff’s Department and the city Police Department at 1205 Second Street.

Authorities arrested Gerald D. Vroman, 36, and Jessie Peluso, 26. Officers confiscated 186 packaged of heroin, electronic scales, $3,000 in cash, a 12-gauge shotgun, police scanners and surveillance cameras. ...

A big "oops" to the Times-Union (Pair arrested for alleged heroin sales), which datelined the story from Troy, not Rensselaer - possibly because the county jail is in Troy. Their story doesn't say Rensselaer, so it reads like it happened in Troy (which normally would be a safe bet...). The Record beat them to the story by an hour, so they could have taken a few extra minutes for proof-reading. (I checked on - they guy definitely lives in Rensselaer.)
