November 17, 1992|By Dennis O'Brien | Dennis O'Brien,Staff Writer

An Anne Arundel County grand jury indicted yesterday four alleged members of a drug ring that police say formed the biggest marijuana distribution network in the county.

The four were indicted under the Maryland drug kingpin statute.

Patricia Emory, 45, principal of Severna Park Elementary School, was not indicted yesterday. Sources said Friday that her case was to be postponed.

Mrs. Emory's husband, James Emory, 47, of the 1200 block of Villa Isle Court in Pasadena, was also indicted on charges of intent to distribute marijuana, possession of marijuana and smuggling it into the state.

Also indicted were:

* Phillip B. Dulaney, 48, of the 1000 block of Woodlawn Ave. in Pasadena, on charges of transporting marijuana into the state and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

* Lawrence C. Leiben, 49, of the first block of St. Agnes Road in Glen Burnie, on charges of conspiracy to distribute marijuana, possession of marijuana, possession of cocaine, possession of paraphernalia and distribution of marijuana.

* Roger Emory, 43, of the 7700 block of West Drive in Glen Burnie, on charges of conspiracy to distribute marijuana and conspiracy to distribute, dispense and bring marijuana into the state. He is James Emory's brother.

E. Thomas Maxwell, Patricia Emory's attorney, said the fact that her case was not brought before the grand jury yesterday is an indication of her innocence and shows that the police lack sufficient evidence to charge her.
