4 arrested, cocaine seized in drug raids

February 28, 1994

Howard County police recovered cocaine and arrested four people in search and seizure raids at two Oakland Mills apartments Thursday night.

Detectives from the Police Department's narcotics and vice division based their searches on information received from undercover investigations. Items seized included nine plastic bags allegedly containing crack cocaine, plus marijuana cigarettes and cocaine residue.

Officers from the tactical section and the street drugs unit simultaneously forced their way into two units in the Stevens Forest Apartments in the 5800 block of Stevens Forest Road, at 8:45 p.m.

In one raid, officers arrested Nathan Tyrone Myers, 37, and Barbara Lou Shelton-Johnson, 36. Both were charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia. They were released on $2,500 early Friday.

In the other raid, Elisa Denise Lemaire, 20, and Janice Denise Jones, 37, were arrested and released on personal recognizance. They both face charges of possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia. Ms. Jones faces an additional charge of possession of marijuana.

The Stevens Forest Apartments are the site of a county police satellite office, which was opened as part of a policing program in which residents work with officers.
