Suspect in Ohio drug case is arrested in Severn

An man wanted in Ohio on a drug charge was arrested Tuesday night in Severn after he was stopped by a police officer after what the officer said he thought was a drug transaction.

The officer was answering a call on Pioneer Drive at Reese Road, when he saw a man climb out of a taxi cab and participate in what the officer said he thought was a drug deal. The man got back in the taxi, which pulled away. The officer stopped the taxi and ran a computer check.

Records indicated the man was wanted on a warrant in Ohio for allegedly distributing and manufacturing drugs. The Cleveland police department was notified, and asked the county police to hold the man -- identified as Keith Arnett Morgan, 35, whose address was listed as 7300 Broken Staff Lane in Columbia -- without bond pending extradition.

Police found no drugs when they searched Mr. Morgan.
