Four people were arrested -- three on drug charges and one on a handgun charge -- within two hours by two undercover Westminster police detectives who were watching activities in the South Center-South Court Street area Thursday night.

Detectives arrested Terry Lee Shank, 22, of the 1100 block of Humbert Schoolhouse Road in Westminster and Jeremy M. Humphrey, 19, of the first block of Fairground Ave. in Taneytown after seeing a hand-to-hand drug transaction about 11 p.m., police said

Both men were charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia after the investigators recovered three pouches containing the marijuana, a pipe and $170 in cash, according to police.

Mr. Shank was held on $2,500 bond.

Mr. Humphrey was released on his own recognizance Friday.

At 12:50 a.m. Thursday, the same detectives reported witnessing another drug transaction.

They arrested Julie Guerre Tarbart, 23, of 800 Century St. in Hampstead and charged her with possession of crack cocaine after they allegedly found one rock of crack cocaine and $70 in her possession.

She was held on $5,000 bond.

Less than an hour later, the detectives allegedly observed two people being assaulted by a man armed with a handgun at South Court and East George Street. They arrested Carlos Antonio Hutton, 18, of the 1200 block of Western Chapel Road in New Windsor and charged him with possession of a .22-caliber Ruger semiautomatic pistol loaded with nine rounds.

The detectives also recovered 102 additional rounds of ammunition and 51 glassine pouches of the type used to package narcotics, police reported. Additional charges filed /^ against Mr. Hutton include two counts of possession of a handgun with the intent to injure, wearing the handgun and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was held on $15,000 bond.
