Saranac Lake Police arrest alleged drug dealer



The drug sweep in late August brought 34 alleged drug dealers and distributors into custody. 

Besides Strack, three others were still wanted in connection with the Aug. 28 sweep.

One man, Adam Bateman, of Massachusetts, turned himself in at the Saranac Lake Police Station last week. 

Bateman, 23, faces felony third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and three counts of fourth-degree conspiracy.

He was processed, arraigned and sent to the Franklin County Jail in lieu of $15,000 cash bail or $30,000 bail bond.

Strack and Bateman remained jailed on Friday.

Still at large with outstanding arrest warrants are Alissa R. Tucker, 19, and Nicholas B. Kolbasook, 19. Anyone with information can contact Saranac Lake Police at 891-4422.
