County narcotics detectives arrested a man wanted on a warrant charging narcotics violations after stopping his car Thursday night at Hospital Drive and Crain Highway, police said.

Detectives on patrol saw a man who matched a suspect's description driving a 1984 Plymouth Convertible at 10 p.m., police said. They stopped the car to serve the warrant, then searched the car and found 7.3 grams of crack cocaine in the occupant's pants pocket, police said.

A bag containing 3.1 grams of suspected crack cocaine was found in the car's trunk, along with a portable scale and a box of baggies, police said. Detectives seized the vehicle and $741 in cash, police said.

Gregory Scott Fyffe, 19, of the 7700 block of Notley Road, Pasadena, was charged with possession of crack cocaine and possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, police said.

Apparent drug deal leads to 2 arrests

A county plainclothes detective arrested two Pasadena men Sunday morning for alcohol and narcotics violations in the parking lot of a Glen Burnie apartment complex, police said.

Detective R. E. Crawford was investigating a suspicious vehicle in the 200 block of Crain Court Circle shorty after 1 a.m., police said. As he walked up to the car, a 1987 Volkswagen Rabbit, he saw two men inside the car apparently conducting a transaction with a man and woman standing outside the car, police said. Detective Crawford also smelled burning marijuana as he approached the car, police said.

Detective Crawford identified himself as a police officer and searched the car after one of the men admitted he had a pipe for smoking marijuana. The detective ordered both men out of the car and found 75 grams of marijuana worth $750, .6 grams of hashish, various forms of narcotics paraphernalia and "a large amount of beer," police said.

Police also seized $671, a cellular phone and the car.

Paul Elwood Ekstrom, 19, of the 8300 block of Dunn Road and Raymond Thomas Fiori Jr., 18, of the first block of Milburn Circle were each charged with possession of marijuana, possession of narcotics paraphernalia and unlawful possession of an alcoholic beverage, police said.
