Police arrest 6 people in suspected drug ring

April 08, 1994|By Kris Antonelli | Kris Antonelli,Sun Staff Writer

County police narcotics officers confiscated about an ounce of crack-cocaine and $1,202 and arrested six people who they said were part of an organized drug ring operating in North County.

The arrests began about 2 p.m. when undercover officers posing as crack-cocaine buyers arranged a meeting with two men in Solley Park on Solley Road.

When the men arrived in a silver station wagon and tried to sell the crack-cocaine, the officers identified themselves and made the arrests, said narcotics Sgt. Joseph Bisesi.

Under the front seat of the Dodge Aries, police said, they found the crack packaged in several small bags inside a potato chip bag.

The men did not have any identification and refused to give police their names, Sergeant Bisesi said.

They were charged with distributing crack-cocaine and were being held last night in the county detention center, Sergeant Bisesi said.

The undercover officers said they had bought crack from the pair several times before yesterday's arrest, but had been unable to identify them.

"These guys are not stupid," Sergeant Bisesi said. "They never carry ID and they never drive the same car or one that belongs to them."

The undercover officers knew them only by their street names of "Dee" and "Skid" and would page them to arrange meetings.

Investigators believe the men live in South Baltimore and are suppliers to the others in the group.

Lisa Marie Minor, 34, and Mark Anthony Martin, 33, both of the 900 block of First St. in Baltimore were arrested at their home yesterday afternoon.

Ms. Minor was charged with two counts of distribution of cocaine, one count of distributing PCP and two counts of distributing a PCP look-alike.

Mr. Martin was charged with two counts of distributing a PCP look-alike.

Judith Ann Decker, 36, of the 100 block of Warwickshire Lane in Glen Burnie, was arrested at her home and charged with one count of distributing cocaine and one count of conspiracy to distribute cocaine.

Stephen Daryl Whittig, 41, of the 200 block of Armstrong Lane in Pasadena, was arrested at his home and charged with three counts of distribution of cocaine.

Police were tipped off to the group by an anonymous caller and began investigating them last October, Sergeant Bisesi said.

More arrests are expected.
