QUEENSBURY — A New York City man who had large quantities of cocaine and heroin when a vehicle he was in was stopped on Route 149 one day last July is headed to prison for 3 years.

Tysean J. Cooper, 27, pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a felony, for a July 1 arrest by Warren County sheriff's officers.
