Westminster police reported recovering about $2,000 worth of crack cocaine with the arrest of two men as they pulled into the driveway of Monumental Millwork about 8 a.m. Friday.

Investigators said they received information Thursday that an employee of the woodworking company brought crack cocaine to work every Friday to sell to co-workers.

Members of the city criminal investigation division stopped a 1993 Honda as it approached the company in the 300 block of Manchester Road, where one of the men who was arrested works.

Detectives called for Sgt. Steve Shatzer and his K-9 dog, Ryn. They said the dog signaled the presence of drugs in the car and a search produced 10 glassine bags of cocaine in a purple cloth bag in the center console, between the front seats.

Officers also confiscated $160 and a cellular telephone from the console.

Detectives said one of the men in the car had two empty pouches and one empty film canister, all containing white

residue, in his pockets.

City police charged Carl Edward Chance, 20, of the first block of Phlox Circle in Owings Mills with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute and possession of cocaine. He is an employee of the company.

He was released after posting $200 bail, 10 percent of the $2,000 bond set by a court commissioner.

Charles Burnell Chance, 38, of the first block of Pittson Circle in Owings Mills was charged with one count each of possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia.

He was released after posting $500, 10 percent of the $5,000 bond set by a court commissioner.

MA Police were not sure of the relationship between the two men.
