BALTIMORE — Fell's Point bar owner arrested in cocaine raid

Federal, state and Baltimore drug agents raided a Fell's Point bar Friday night and arrested the owner, who the Drug Enforcement Administration said has been the head of a cocaine trafficking organization.

She and Mamie Marie Newhouse, 22, of the 1000 block of Sumter Ave. in Rosedale, were charged with distribution of cocaine, possession of cocaine and possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute.
