A Poughkeepsie man was busted for possession of crack cocaine after investigators with the Dutchess County Task Force received complaints of drug dealing in the area.

Edward Grant, 57, was arrested on Friday, Jan. 19, following a search of North Clinton Street home by the task force along with the City of Poughkeepsie Police Emergency Services Unit, said Frank Tasciotti, a spokesman with the task force.

The search warrant was a result of an investigation into narcotics sales taking place at and around that location, he said.

During the search of the residence, a quantity of crack cocaine, cash, scales, and packaging materials was seized.

Grant was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.

He is being held without bail at the Dutchess County Jail. Additional charges may be pending.
