A monthlong investigation led to the Friday arrests of five people at a Union Bridge home where police reported seizing PCP, cocaine and marijuana.
Ten officers from the Carroll County Narcotics Task Force, state police and the Carroll County Sheriff's Department, with a search warrant, raided the home in the 900 block of McKinstrys Mill Road at 8 p.m., said Sgt. John Burton of the task force.
Sergeant Burton said the task force confiscated a half-ounce of liquid PCP, 1.5 ounces of parsley flakes mixed with PCP, 2 ounces of marijuana, 1.5 grams of cocaine and drug paraphernalia.
Three residents of the home -- Kimberly Ann Godfrey, 27; Martin DTC Scott Bloom, 29; and Gary Michael Goodhart, 28 -- were charged with possession with intent to distribute PCP, manufacture of PCP, possession of PCP, possession of marijuana, maintaining a common nuisance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Gary Richard Sullivan, 29, of the 1100 block of Old Westminster Pike in Westminster was charged with possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia. Richard Martin Blizzard, 31, of the 5100 block of Hains Lane in Taneytown was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Sergeant Burton said the task force -- composed of sheriff's deputies, state troopers and Westminster police officers -- is concentrating on PCP use in the area. Friday's raid netted about $2,000 worth of the drug, he said.
A half-ounce of liquid PCP is "a pretty substantial amount," he said. Police found most of the PCP in a freezer, he said, and some in a vehicle. He said the marijuana seized had a street value of about $440. Police also seized about $500 in cash, he said, and a car and a pickup truck.
Sergeant Burton said three children of Ms. Godfrey and Mr. Bloom were at the house, and were picked up by their grandmother.
The five suspects were taken to the Carroll County Detention Center.
Ms. Godfrey, Mr. Bloom and Mr. Goodhart were released yesterday after posting $25,000 bond each. Mr. Sullivan was released yesterday after posting $2,500 bond. Mr. Blizzard was being held yesterday on $25,000 bond.
