Police charge 3 with drug possession
Three North County men face drug and weapons charges after police confiscated liquid PCP from their car early Thursday morning.

Orchard Road in Linthicum; Keith William Horton, 27, of the 7600 block of Quarterfield Road in Glen Burnie; and Raymond Edward Knapp, 24, of the 1600 block of Tieman Drive in Glen Burnie all were charged with possession of PCP with the intent to distribute.
