Waterford: Small Town With Big City Problems?
We all know Waterford, that small peaceful town located where the Hudson River, Mohawk River, and the Erie canal meet. A picturesque town where two things are almost guaranteed to happen every year, fall flooding and the steam boat meet.
Well, recently Waterford has been in the news for different reasons than it’s small-town charm. Multiple drug arrests this week have us scratching our heads.
The Troy Record is reporting James M. Cerqua locked himself into a Stewart’s bathroom for over an hour to get high on what is believed to be heroin. Also reported a three-month police investigation has ended with the arrest of Steven M. Tyler, who has been charged with two counts of criminal sale of controlled substance. In this case, it’s a felony.
Maybe this is a coincidence of two isolated incidents. Either way not the kind of news we’re used to hearing from Waterford.
