FBI arrests county fugitive in Florida

An Annapolis man wanted by Anne Arundel County police for jumping bail after a conviction on cocaine charges was arrested by the FBI in Tampa, Fla., yesterday.

Antonio Rosario Priola, 46, whose last known Maryland address was Pinkney Street, was arrested without incident.

Priola had been sought since Aug. 2 when a federal warrant was issued in Baltimore charging him with unlawful flight to avoid confinement.

The federal warrant was based on an Anne Arundel County warrant issued Feb. 12 after Priola failed to show up for court following his conviction and sentencing for the manufacturing and distribution of cocaine. He was free on bond following the conviction while his case was appealed.

Priola will be held in Tampa until Anne Arundel County authorities bring him back to Maryland, according to Danny O. Coulson, special agent in charge of the Maryland-Delaware division of the FBI.

Church members restocking pantry

Members of First Presbyterian Church in Annapolis are participating in a monthlong campaign to restock the food pantry at the Light House shelter.

Church members are bringing nonperishable food -- such as canned tuna, peanut butter, dried milk and juice -- to this month's Sunday morning worship services.

The church also is accepting donations to buy bags of groceries.

Last year's food drive provided about $2,500 worth of groceries to the shelter.

Edgewater men face drug charges

County police arrested two Edgewater men on drug charges about 8 p.m. Friday after searching a house in the 1800 block of Glen Arm Road and seizing marijuana and PCP.

George Northcraft Jr., 37, and Steven Hanahoe, 26, both of whom lived at the house, were charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, PCP and marijuana.
