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.
