Man, woman arrested on drug charges

June 15, 1994

A man and woman from Severna Park were charged with narcotics violations Monday morning, authorities said.

Kelroy Williamson, 26, of the 800 block of Annapolis Road and Carolyn Linda Coates, 36, of the 100 block of Dennis Road were charged with possession of cocaine and possession of narcotics paraphernalia.

Police gave this account of the arrests:

About 2:30 a.m., officers saw a woman park her car in the 7800 block of Shirley Murphy Court and walk to an apartment in the block. A few minutes later a man came out and got into the car.

When they approached to question him, he ran into one of the apartment buildings. Police said they tracked the man to one apartment, where one of the officers saw him trying to escape through a second-story window. He closed the window and drew the blinds when he became aware he was being watched.

Police said they found a pipe for smoking crack cocaine under a shirt lying on the bed and a pink plastic bag containing suspected crack cocaine during a subsequent search of the suspect.

Officers said they searched the female's hip bag and found a pink plastic bag containing one nugget of suspected crack cocaine. The woman also said she owned another pipe found in the apartment, police said.
