Redistricting plan to be explained

School officials will present details of their plans to redraw some elementary school districts and send Riviera Beach students to Chesapeake Bay Middle School at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Northeast High School auditorium.

Mike Raible, director of school planning, said a new Solley Elementary School, seven times larger than the existing facility, is being planned to alleviate overcrowding at Sunset, Solley and High Point elementary schools.

To reduce crowding at George Fox Middle School, Riviera Beach-area students would be sent to Chesapeake Bay Middle School, Mr. Raible said. However, they would attend Northeast High School rather than Chesapeake High, he said.

Tuesday's meeting is informational only, Mr. Raible said. Parents will be allowed to comment directly to the county Board of Education, which has yet to approve the plans, during a 7 p.m Feb. 25 hearing at Northeast High.

Man charged with drug possession

A Baltimore man was charged with manufacturing PCP after police stopped a van he was riding in Tuesday on Fort Smallwood Road.

According to the police report, officers received a tip from a confidential source that the man would be riding in a blue Ford van into the Pasadena area. The source said he would have PCP.

Officers stopped a van at 6 p.m. and questioned a man who fit the description of the suspect.

When the man got out of the van, officers could smell a strong odor of PCP. They searched the man and found six bags the substance.

Peter B. Kato, 26, of the 200 block of South Pulaski Highway, was taken to Eastern District station to be charged.
