Meeting tackles teens and drugs

March 27, 2006

Albany-- Something else for you to worry about when it comes to your kids, an increasing drug problem.

Monday night, people in East Albany learned more about the problem at a town hall meeting. Police say the most common drugs remain marijuana and crack cocaine. But get this, more teenagers and other users are using methamphetamine and prescription drugs like Xanax and Codine mixed with alcohol. Police say you can help them crack down.

"Anytime that there is a problem in their community, that they feel suspicious that something is going on for them to go ahead and give the Albany Police Department a call and let them know that there is some suspicion. We will send someone out to check the problem out," says Captain Leroy Davis of ADDU.

You should look for numerous vehicles going in and out of your neighborhood, money exchanging hands and even strong chemical smells. That could mean someone is cooking meth.
