Severn man, 18, charged with loitering at corner

May 27, 1994

County police checking out complaints of drug dealing at Pioneer Drive and Arwell Court Wednesday arrested an 18-year-old Severn man for allegedly failing to move from the intersection.

Torrey Garnett, of the 8300 block of Pioneer Drive, was charged with loitering, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, police said.

Western District officers went to the intersection shortly before 7 p.m. They asked the men for identification. Police said that Mr. Garnett refused to show identification and refused to leave the corner after they pointed out a "No trespassing, No loitering" sign.

As the discussion became more heated, a crowd of 20 to 30 people gathered.

Officers arrested Mr. Garrett after making several requests for him to move on, and had to subdue him with pepper mace when he resisted, police said.
