March 03, 1995

A Baltimore man was arrested on drug and theft charges Wednesday after an attempted theft of merchandise from a Pasadena store where he worked, county police said.

A security supervisor at the Metro Food Store in the 8100 block of Ritchie Highway told police that around 5:30 p.m. he saw a man put meat, rice and meat tenderizer worth $26 into two plastic bags and place them in a closet.

At 8 a.m., the man took the bags and tried to leave the store without paying for the items, police said.

The supervisor stopped the man and held him until police arrived. Officers searched the man and found a small bag of suspected marijuana in his coat pocket, police said.

Marc Albert Stevenson, 32, of the 400 block of Laurens St., a janitor at the store, was charged with possession of marijuana and misdemeanor theft, police said.

Undercover operation leads to arrest of 2

A Pasadena man and a Glen Burnie woman were arrested on drug charges in separate incidents during an undercover operation Monday night in the 7800 block of Shirley Murphy Court in Freetown, police said.

Shortly before 9 p.m., Officer Michael Mulford saw a man drive to an apartment building in the block, enter an apartment and leave about 30 seconds later. As the man drove off, a uniformed officer stopped his 1994 Chevrolet pickup and recovered a small package of cocaine on the floor, police said.

About an hour later, a woman visited an apartment in the same building, then drove off a few minutes later in a 1987 Buick. When Cpl. Michael Belcher stopped her on New Freetown Road, the woman admitted buying $10 worth of crack cocaine but said she had thrown it away, police said.

She also claimed to be trying build a relationship with the dealer so that she could make a bigger buy and help police arrest him, police said. Corporal Belcher searched the woman and her car and found a piece of crack cocaine in her right jacket pocket, police said.

Karen Genevieve Haven, 36, of the 8900 block of Park South Drive and Phillip Andrew Williams, 29, of the 8200 block of Old Mill Road were charged with possession of cocaine, police said.
