Two Anne Arundel County houses were searched and 16 people were arrested and charged with drug violations in separate incidents late Friday.

The first arrests occurred because state police Tfc. Anita Allen, who was having trouble finding an address she had been sent to visit, knocked on the door of a home in the 1200 block of Nottingham Drive in Glen Burnie to ask directions, state police said.

When a resident opened the door, Trooper Allen smelled burning marijuana and PCP. The trooper arrested the seven people in the house on charges of possessing drugs.

Police arrested Robert Lorin Ross, 28, who lives in the house; Gary Alan Plowman, 22; Sheila Dawn Amis, 24; Tamie Christine Duncan, 27, and Donald Franklin Marvel, 23, all of Glen Burnie; Thomas Edward Martin Jr., 24, of Linthicum, and Audrey Mae Amis, 21, of Grasonville. All were released on their own recognizance yesterday.

Later Friday, in Laurel, Anne Arundel County police carrying a warrant searched a home in the 3500 block of Spring Road and arrested nine people.

Arrested and charged with possession of cocaine and paraphernalia, as well as possession with intent to distribute, were: Patricia Ann Nelson, 40, and Michelle Lynn Sorrell-Nelson, 22, who lived in the house; Kelly Dee Clements, 32, of Seabrook; George Leroy Nicholson, 40, of Laurel; George Eugene Border, 28, of Laurel; Shawn Maurice Brown, 22, of Laurel; Tracy F. Thomas, 24, of Laurel; a juvenile, 17, whose name was not released; and William Wesley Snyder, 28, of Laurel.
