CROWN HEIGHTS - Money from a Crown Heights drug bust is being used for a program that aims to keep kids away from drugs.

The NYPD and New York City Housing Authority teamed up to use the funds for after-school programs at the Albany and Weeksville Gardens houses.

Authorities say the center they're using has enough room for about 120 teens.
