Pickus case adjourned until May

GLOVERSVILLE – A former Gloversville Enlarged School District administrator who was accused of drug charges by Colonie police in March had his case adjourned until early next month, according to Colonie Justice Court officials.

Pickus, 57, of 16 Moore Ave., Saratoga Springs, was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal use of drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors, and traffic infractions.

Pickus, previously the Gloversville Enlarged School District assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction, was charged by Colonie police with being in possession of methamphetamine after a traffic stop, police said.

Pickus was placed on paid administrative leave after his arrest March 2, and he resigned from his job last week.

On March 5, Pickus pleaded not guilty before Judge Peter Crummey in Colonie Court.

Pickus is scheduled to return to Colonie Court on May 7 at 6 p.m.
