June 23, 1994

County narcotics detectives arrested a 19-year-old Severn man and a 22-year-old woman Tuesday morning after a raid on the man's house in the 8300 block of Deer Run Court during which police said they seized 147 grams of crack cocaine.

Ricco Medley of the Deer Run Court address and Estella Patrice Jones of the 1900 block of Bastille Place in Severn were charged with possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, police said.

Using a search warrant, members of the Western District tactical narcotics team and special operations squad went to the house at 10 a.m., police said. Police said they found the cocaine, which they said had a street value of $14,700, packaged in 116 small plastic bags and two larger plastic bags, police said.

Police arrest man wanted on drug charge

County police arrested a man wanted on a warrant for narcotics distribution after they stopped his car at Harvey Ave. and Clark Station Road Tuesday afternoon, officials said.

A Western District officer stopped the man shortly after 5 p.m. when he recognized him as the man being sought on the warrant, police said. The officer had the man get out of the car and arrested him, police said. A search turned up a large number of small yellow plastic bags that the officer suspected might be used to package narcotics, police said.

The officer also found a white, rock-like substance in the cup holder on the car's center console and a tubular smoking device under the driver's seat, police said. The substance field-tested positive for cocaine, police said.

Richard Paul Sigley, 31, of the 300 block of Baltimore Ave. in Odenton, was charged in the incident, police said.

Gambler is suspected of check fraud

A man who played nearly $14,000 worth of keno games at an Odenton lounge Sunday and Monday and paid for them by check is suspected of check fraud, county police said.

The man played the games in Kim's Lounge, in the 1600 block of Annapolis Road. He allegedly wrote a check for $1,750 after he played keno at the lounge on Sunday, Randy Fazio, the manager of the lounge, told police. The man returned on Monday and played more games, allegedly writing two checks to cover the costs -- one for $5,000 and the other for $7,000, police said.

The owner of the lounge checked with the Bank of Glen Burnie on Monday and learned that the man's account didn't have enough money to cover the first check, police said.

Attempts to reach the man have been unsuccessful, police said. The suspect left the checkbook at the lounge, police said.
