 TROY, N.Y. – Troy Police have arrested three men and one teenager after a search warrant was executed at an apartment.

According to Troy Police, on Monday around 9:30 p.m., the Troy Police Department Firearms Interdiction and Narcotics Suppression Unit (FINS) served a search warrant to the first floor of 313 9th Street.
