Man arrested on cocaine-distribution charge

April 10, 1994|By Kris Antonelli | Kris Antonelli,Sun Staff Writer

A 29-year-old Sun Valley man who police say was a cocaine supplier to northern Anne Arundel County has been charged with possession with intent to distribute the drug.

Paul Martin Myers Jr. of the 7800 block of Cheverly Lane, Glen Burnie, also was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana after police raided his home at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

He posted a $40,000 bond and was released Friday.

According to investigators, Mr. Myers is suspected of being part of a small drug ring that operated primarily in Glen Burnie and Pasadena. He was one of seven alleged members of the group arrested Thursday.

Members of the police Special Operations Section served the search warrant at Mr. Myers' home, where he lives with his parents.

Narcotics detectives seized 20 grams of suspected cocaine, 55 grams of suspected marijuana and $2,080, police said.

The detectives confiscated several suspected marijuana plants that were growing in plastic cups in a bedroom.

The arrests began about 2 p.m. Thursday. 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, the officers identified themselves and made the arrests.

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

The men, known to detectives only by their street names of "Dee" and "Skid," did not have any identification and refused to give police their names, said Sgt. Joseph Bisesi of the narcotics squad.

The men were charged with distributing crack cocaine and were being held in the county detention center until the police learn their identities, Sergeant Bisesi said.

Police were tipped off to the group by an anonymous caller and began an investigation in October, he said.

More arrests are expected.
