March 29, 1995

A Baltimore man dressed as a woman was arrested Monday afternoon in the theft of $642 worth of jogging suits from a Macy's store in Marley Station mall, county police said.

Stephen Sumner, a security officer at the store in the 7800 block of Ritchie Highway, saw a man walk into the store shortly after 5 p.m. wearing a wig and earrings and carrying a purse. The man took eight jogging suits from one rack, placed them on another rack, then took a plastic bag from the purse and hid the suits in it, police said.

The man then walked out of the store into the parking lot, where security officers stopped him and held him until a Northern District officer took custody, police said.

Ronnie Wesley Gray, 50, of the 1900 block of Eutaw Street, was charged with felony theft, police said.

3 charged in drug raid

Narcotics detectives arrested three people Friday night after raiding a Glen Burnie home and recovering several plastic bags with suspected cocaine residue in them, county police said.

Police went to the house in the 200 block of W. Meadow Road about 10 p.m. They said they had received complaints from neighbors for the past month about people buying and using cocaine in the house. Acting on the complaints, detectives got a search and seizure warrant for the address, police said.

Deborah Stillman, 40, who lives in the house that was raided, and John Bryant, 28, and Sheryl Booth, 32, both of the 4100 block of Belle Grove Road, were each charged with possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia, police said.
