ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY ANNAPOLIS — Fifth person indicted under drug kingpin law

ANNAPOLIS -- An Anne Arundel County grand jury has indicted a fifth suspect accused of being a drug kingpin in the $1 million marijuana ring that allegedly included a school principal, but the state's attorney's office has dropped kingpin charges lodged against another defendant in the case.

William Bailey Jr., 46, of Annapolis was indicted Monday under the Maryland drug kingpin statute, said deputy prosecutor Gerald K. Anders.

Mr. Bailey was arrested during an Oct. 29 raid on area homes and storage sheds that netted 800 pounds of marijuana.

Last week, the grand jury indicted James Emory, 47, and Phillip B. Dulany, 48, both of Pasadena, and Lawrence C. Leiben, 49, and Roger Emory, 43, both from Glen Burnie.

Felony drug charges against Barry E. Parker, 43, of Annapolis were dropped by the state's attorney's office. He is charged instead with misdemeanor counts of possession of marijuana and possession with intent to use drug paraphernalia.

Patricia Emory, the Severna Park Elementary School principal who also was charged but not yet indicted under the kingpin law, will appear before the grand jury Dec. 7.
