Marijuana Bust Reveals More

(posted: August 25th, 12:50 pm)  A tip that a man was selling marijuana out of his apartment turns up a stash of child pornography.

Albany County Sheriff's Department raided Michael Dorenzo's apartment at 134 Altamont Road in Voorheesville Wednesday morning.  There they found dozens of marijuana plants that he was selling out of his apartment. 

Upon further investigation, police discovered a disturbing amount of child pornography at the residence as well.
