January 18, 1995

Three men awaiting trial on state drug charges were arrested on a federal warrant by the FBI Friday after an evidence suppression hearing in Harford Circuit Court, authorities said yesterday.

FBI spokesman Andy Manning confirmed the arrests and said they were not tied to the Maryland charges. He declined to discuss details, saying that the arrest warrant, issued in North Carolina, was sealed.

The three suspects, Mark Anthony Clay, 22, of New Jersey; Thomas Eugene Clay, 25, of Baltimore; and Bobbie C. Simonde, 25, of Charlotte, N.C., were arrested on the state charges March 17 on Interstate 95 near Aberdeen after troopers stopped them for alleged speeding. Police said they found a kilogram of cocaine and $1,899 in cash, and filed drug kingpin, conspiracy and three cocaine-related charges against the three men.
