NISKAYUNA: Police score major drug bust

Carney said Trantham actually had a pending court case from an April arrest when 1.6 grams of crack cocaine and $23,000 were found. Carney said Trantham made bail in that situation.

In this case, Trantham was sent to the Schenectady County Sheriff's Office without bail. McManus said this is probably the largest drug arrest in Niskayuna's history. Carney said in his 17 years as district attorney, he hasn't seen a larger load of drugs.

An active arrest warrant has been issued for Handiel Tesheira, 29, who lives at the Crescent Road residence. Police said Tesheira might be operating a black 1996 Acura sedan with New York registration DVA6759.

Anyone with information about Tesheira is asked to contact local law enforcement agencies.""
