Teen accused of injecting heroin

CLIFTON PARK (AP) -- A 17-year-old upstate New York student has been accused of injecting heroin into another student. State Police say Daniel Lewis of Clifton Park is charged with criminal injection of a narcotic drug, endangering the welfare of a child, criminal possession of a controlled substance, and possession of a hypodermic instrument.

The charges stem from an incident at Shenendehowa High School. Troopers responded to a report of a 15-year-old student under the influence of heroin. An investigation revealed that Lewis had injected the student with heroin while at the school, and Lewis was found with the narcotic and hypodermic needles.

Lewis was arraigned in Town of Clifton Park Court and sent to Saratoga County Jail.

Former parole officer charged

AUBURN (AP) -- A retired central New York parole officer has been charged with stealing tens of thousands of dollars by submitting phony time sheets.

State Police say Angelo Ervolina of Auburn faces second-degree grand larceny and multiple counts of first-degree offering a false instrument for filing. State police say while Ervolina worked as a senior parole officer for the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, he falsified electronic time sheet records, collecting about $66,000 over a 20 month period.

Ervolina was arraigned and released on his own recognizance, to appear in court Jan. 9.

APA to vote on new land use

RAY BROOK (AP) -- Adirondack Park Agency commissioners are expected to vote on 10 resolutions to classify new state land in segments that range from primitive to wild forest to wilderness.

The Plattsburgh Press-Republican reports that one resolution to be considered Friday for the Essex Chain Lakes parcel would remove motorized boat access to a string of forest ponds. But the paper said detailed classification of the former Finch, Pruyn & Co. land also would add a narrow band of wild forest along former logging roads, and that corridor could become a snowmobile trail connecting Newcomb and Indian Lake.

The potential for a wintertime recreation trail drew much discussion at the APA meeting Thursday.
