Four Arnold men arrested in drug case
A three-month undercover drug investigation led to the arrests Wednesday of four Arnold men in a home on Shore Road, county police said yesterday.
Police raided a house in the 100 block of Shore Road about 9 p.m. and seized $5,000 worth of marijuana and hashish along with pagers and a 1982 Mazda RX-7.
Authorities said they were acting on complaints from neighbors about drug dealing.
They said detectives infiltrated the network and were taken to the Arnold address, the home of David Sade, 25.
Mr. Sade was charged with two counts of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute.
Michael B. McIntyre II, 24, of the 800 block of Spriggs Court, and Richard John Cohen, 23, of the 1200 block of Birchcrest Court, were also charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
Mark Anthony Hopkins, 28, of the 100 block of Shore Road, was charged with possession of marijuana.
A5 Police said that additional arrests are expected.
Fugitive captured after seeing bondsman
A man who escaped while being taken to District Court in Annapolis last month was captured in Baltimore Wednesday after he tried to arrange bail for his girlfriend.
County police said yesterday that Benny D. King, 25, of the 4500 block of Garden Drive, Baltimore, was being taken to the court on Rowe Boulevard to face felony theft charges on Aug. 19.
But on the way into the building, he managed to get free of his handcuffs and ran into nearby woods, police said.
On Wednesday, police said they learned Mr. King had visited a Baltimore bail bondsman in hopes of getting his girlfriend out of jail.
He was arrested and is being held in the Anne Arundel County Detention Center, awaiting trial.
