Two Westminster men and a woman were arrested and charged with four drug counts each after a raid at an apartment in the 100 block of Bond St. Thursday night.

Members of the Carroll County Narcotics Task Force confiscated more than 1 ounce of marijuana and about one-eighth of an ounce of PCP (phencyclidine) from the apartment and the car of one of the men, authorities said.

A District Court commissioner ordered that both men -- Todd Regan Shortley, 26, who lives in the apartment on Bond Street, and James Randolph Barton III, 22, of the 3000 block of Harter Road -- be held in the county detention center on $25,000 bond.

Tami Lynn Gunderson, 32, also of the Bond Street address, was released on $25,000 unsecured bond after the 6:18 p.m. raid.

All three were charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession of marijuana, possession of PCP and possession of narcotics paraphernalia.

Investigators reported they found plastic-cellophane bags, smoking pipes and cigarette-rolling paper during the raid.

Sgt. John Burton, of the task force, said the three were standing in the living room of the apartment around a table that held PCP and theparaphernalia. The bag of marijuana was found inside Mr. Barton's pants.

While officers searched the apartment, sheriff's Deputy 1st Class Melvin Prise, using his drug-sniffing German shepherd dog, Rebel, checked Mr. Shortley's 1975 Chevrolet Monte Carlo and discovered a film canister on the front seat containing marijuana, authorities said.

Sergeant Burton said police also seized $532 in cash in the raid.

Mr. Barton posted bond and was released from custody at 1:25 a.m. Friday, court records show.
