Police get a tip, arrest man on drug charges

November 08, 1994

A 27-year-old Westminster man was arrested Friday night and charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, and possession of cocaine and marijuana.

Westminster police said they received a tip about 9 p.m. Friday that someone was in the area of Lincoln Road and East George Street and had drugs in his possession.

Members of the department's criminal investigation division went to the area, and said they took six glassine pouches containing crack cocaine and some marijuana from the man.

Garland Randall Spivey of the 100 block of Charles St. was originally held on $25,000 bond by a court commissioner, but the bond was lowered to $10,000 in a bail review hearing yesterday. Twenty percent of that amount can be posted as bail.

The maximum penalty for the charges is 25 years imprisonment and a $75,000 fine.
