Helpers sought for tributary cleanup

The fourth cleanup of a tributary of Sawmill Creek will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday.

The tributary is located off Penrod Court in the Glen Burnie Industrial Park. Linda Russell, who heads the Sawmill Creek Recovery Team, said people who want to help remove debris from the water and the creek bed should meet in the parking lot behind Safety Kleen on Penrod Court.

The Recovery Team is a group of community volunteers interested in cleaning up and restoring the Sawmill Creek watershed. In recent cleanups of the area, volunteers have hauled away debris ranging from rotting furniture to old tires.

The Chesapeake Bay Trust has provided the group with a small grant to pay for trash bags and other equipment used in removing debris from the watershed, Mrs. Russell said.

The cleanup project was begun under the direction of Maryland Save Our Streams (SOS), a nonprofit environmental organization. For information about the cleanup, call SOS at 969-0084.

2 charged with intent to distribute cocaine

County police charged two people with narcotics violations after being tipped that a shipment of cocaine was going to be delivered to a Glen Burnie home Sunday.

According to the police report, officers followed a man and a woman from the Forest Glen Motel to Nolpark Court. The officers stopped the couple and searched them, confiscating about $800 worth of crack cocaine and $900.

Police also searched the motel room and found drug packaging materials, processing equipment and other paraphernalia.

Michael Elwood Leonard, 42, of no fixed address, was charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine. Sonya Faye Odezugo, 26, of the 3800 block of Borman St. in Baltimore, also was charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine.
