Albany Times Union - Sunday - - AROUND THE REGION -

A Ful­ton County jury has con­victed a Gloversville man on one felony and one mis­de­meanor drug pos­ses­sion charge. Codie Hay­ward, 31, of 85 North St., faces up to 15 years in prison when sen­tenced at an un­de­ter­mined date, Dis­trict At­tor­ney Chad Brown’s of­fice said.

A search war­rant was used ear­lier this year by the Glove Cities Emer­gency Re­sponse Team and Hay­ward was found in an apart­ment with drug para­pher­na­lia, heroin, co­caine and pot.

The jury de­lib­er­ated for about 2½ hours fol­low­ing tes­ti­mony on Tues­day, pros­e­cu­tors said. Eight wit­nesses were called.

Troy man ad­mits to gun charge

AL­BANY — A Troy man pleaded guilty Thurs­day to crim­i­nal pos­ses­sion of a weapon, a crime that could net him eight years in prison.

Al­bany County Dis­trict At­tor­ney David Soares said Raymeir Worthen, 25, en­tered his plea in Al­bany County Court.

Po­lice say in May they made a traf­fic stop near Lark and State streets; Worthen was the pas­sen­ger.

Po­lice found a sawed-off 12-gauge shot­gun with five rounds. The weapon was il­le­gal for Worthen to have be­cause of his 2013 felony con­vic­tion for at­tempted rob­bery, also in Al­bany.

In ad­di­tion to eight years in state prison, Worthen could also face five years of post-re­lease su­per­vi­sion when sen­tenced on Jan. 24.
