December 02, 1990

Baltimore County police seized an estimated $25,000 of crack cocaine Friday night and arrested four women in a drug raid at a Middle River apartment, a police department spokesman said.

Undercover agents, acting on tips from residents at the Cove Village Apartments, began making $50 purchases of crack from a unit at the complex beginning in October, police said.

About 8 p.m. Friday, they returned to the apartment with a search warrant.

The drugs seized by detectives were packaged in small, $20 vials containing two or three "rocks" of crack, a cheap, highly addictive form of cocaine that is smoked by the user. The drug was brought into Maryland, according to police, from New York City.

Arrested were Karen Sophia Ennis, 23, of Teaneck, N.J., held last night at the county's North Point precinct on $300,000 bond; Sharon Richards, 35, of Ebbtide Court in the Cove Village Apartments, held on $250,000 bond; Yvonne Winifred Thompson, 33, of Masthead Court, held on $200,000 bond; and Carol Lynn Hill, 31, also of Masthead Court, held on $75,000 bond.

All four are charged with the manufacture and distribution of cocaine.
