Howard County police arrested four Columbia men and a Port Tobacco man Tuesday night and found suspected cocaine and marijuana during a raid at a Columbia townhouse.

The county's street drug and tactical sections searched the home in the 8900 block of Footed Ridge in the Jeffers Hill community at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.

According to police, they found a plastic bag containing 7.7 grams of cocaine; a small vial of cocaine; a small bag of crack cocaine; marijuana; packaging materials and other drug paraphernalia.

The men were charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine, cocaine possession and other drug charges.
