A Jessup couple were arrested on drug charges after Howard County police raided their Elkridge home and found marijuana and cocaine Thursday night.

Patricia Lee Conrad, 34, and Richard Lee Fox, 38, of the 7100 block of Kit Kat Road were charged with possession of marijuana and cocaine, possession with intent to distribute marijuana and cocaine, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The two were being held at the Howard County Detention Center on $5,000 bond each Friday.

Narcotics detectives served a warrant at the home at 11:10 p.m. Thursday, police said.

Officers from the Street Drug Section, the Tactical Section and the Patrol Division raided the home and found: several wrapped plastic bags containing 34.5 grams of marijuana; 2.5 grams of cocaine; smoking pipes; two weighing scales; a handgun; a rifle; a shotgun; and other items, police said.

Police suspect 2 men in series of robberies

Howard County police say two men they are seeking in the armed robbery of a Jessup gas station Thursday night may be the same pair responsible for up to seven other similar robberies since December.

Police said the two men who robbed Harry's Exxon in the 7900 block of Washington Blvd. Thursday had masked faces and were similar in build to two suspects wanted in the other cases.

About 8:10 p.m., a man in a ski mask and another man whose face was covered with a blue and white bandanna entered the mini-store at the gas station and approached the cashier, police said.

Both men drew guns, demanded money and then fled with cash, police said.

The first suspect was described as a 6-foot-1-inch black male wearing a black leather jacket over a light-colored hooded jacket. He wore a bandanna over his face.

The second suspect, a 5-foot-9-inch black male, had a heavy build and wore a ski mask, police said. The suspects could be the pair blamed for a string of armed robberies from Dec. 7 to Jan. 1.
