Howard County police raided a Hickory Ridge townhouse late Tuesday night, arresting 10 people after fighting their way past two large dogs that attacked them as they entered.

Officers from the Police Department's Street Drug Unit and the Tactical Section forced their way into the home in the 7400 block of Hickory Log Circle at 11:55 p.m., breaking up a party and seizing 6 ounces of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and $840.

The officers encountered two large, dark-colored dogs, described as boxers, as they entered the dwelling. An officer fired at one dog as another officer drove the second animal back with a ballistic shield.

Police ordered a resident to secure the pets. No one was injured.

Serin Aziz Saadi, 18, and Simeon Travis Franklin, 21, who live in the town house, were charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Each man was released on a $10,000 unsecured bond after appearing before a Howard District Court commissioner early yesterday.

The other people at the party, who were released on personal recognizance, were charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

They were Edward Curtis McLemore, 21, of the 7400 block of Hickory Log Circle; Wei-Yu Chen, 19, of the 9000 block of Gold Amber Garth; Gregory Hart Degrafft, 20, of the 9300 block of Wild Bees Lane; Delores Dawn Myers, 21, of the 5200 block of Hayledge Court; Norreen Nicole Turner, 20, of the 5200 block of Five Fingers Way, all of Columbia.
