Greater Severn group to replace 2 top officers

May 12, 1994

The Greater Severn Improvement Association has scheduled an emergency meeting tonight to address the loss of its two top officers, both of whom are resigning.

Sherman Reagan, the president, and Mark Cronin, the vice president, are being transferred from their Department of Defense jobs at Fort Meade and will be moving out of state.

The association only has one more regularly scheduled meeting between now and September, making it imperative that they start the selection process as soon as possible.

That means tonight's scheduled meeting with U.S. Rep. Ben Cardin, D-3rd, has been canceled. It has not been rescheduled.

Mr. Cronin said possible successors will be discussed at tonight's meeting, to be held at 8 p.m. at the Western District police station in Odenton.

2 men are charged with drug possession

County police arrested two Brooklyn Park men on drug charges Sunday morning after stopping them in a car at Cronson Boulevard and Route 3 in Crofton, officials said.

A county officer stopped a 1983 Mercury Lynx shortly before 5:30 a.m. when he noticed the car had no tail lights, police said.

The officer arrested the two occupants after spotting what appeared to be a marijuana pipe on the rear floor of the car.

A field test of the substance found in the car confirmed it was marijuana, police said.

Wesley Myron Souders, Jr., 22, of the 700 block of 49th St. and Daniel Courtney Perry, 22, of the 1900 block of Adams Road were each charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Teens toss children into trash bin

Two teen-age boys threw two 5-year-old girls into a trash bin in Severn Sunday afternoon, knocking a tooth from one of the girls, county police said yesterday.

The incident happened around 3 p.m. as the girls were playing with several friends in front of a home in the 1800 block of Pine Grove Court, police said.

Two teen-age boys approached the children. One of them picked up one girl and the other picked up another. The boys then threw both girls into the trash bin and fled, police said. The second girl was not injured.

The girls were able to give police a description of one of the suspects. They said he was a light-skinned black male, 15 to 16, with a design shaved in his eyebrow. He had two earrings in his right ear and was wearing black combat boots.

The injured girl's father reported the incident to police the next day.
