Four people, including a man wanted by the Harford County Sheriff's Office on an outstanding warrant, were charged with distribution of narcotics after members of the Harford County Joint Narcotics Task Force raided an Aberdeen apartment Tuesday.

Those arrested were Timothy Shawn Woodberry, 19, of the 1800 block of Brookside Drive, Edgewood; William Davon Copeland Jr., 28, of the 300 block of Stevens Circle, Aberdeen; Robin Lee Welshons, 23, of the 300 block of Stevens Circle, Aberdeen; and Charles Aaron Nicosia Green, 21, of the 6200 block of Cedar Drive, Edgewood.

Mr. Green had been wanted since May 5 on a warrant alleging he had $15,000 worth of crack cocaine in his apartment, said Sgt. Edward Hopkins, a spokesman for the Harford County Sheriff's Office said.

Mr. Green is being held at the Harford County Detention Center in lieu of $25,000 bond, the sergeant said; the other three are being held in lieu of $10,000 bond.

Mr. Green was one of about 20 people suspected of dealing drugs whom narcotics investigators tried to round up in simultaneous raids in Edgewood Oct. 5, Sergeant Hopkins said.

Six warrants, including Mr. Green's, went unserved that night, he said.

Police said others still are being sought on criminal indictments: James Lee Adams, 39, of the 1800 block of Edgewater Drive, Edgewood; Bishop Dean Hopkins, 30, of the 2200 block of Johnson Mill Road, Forest Hill; Derek David Marks, 26, of the 300 block of Forsythia Court, Abingdon; and Tony Jones, 19, of the 500 block of Candlewood Court, Edgewood.

One man for whom deputies had an outstanding warrant, Jermaine Anthony Bolling, was charged two nights earlier with attempted murder after two deputies were wounded. Mr. Bolling, who is being held on $2 million bond, allegedly opened fire on two men sitting in a car next to the deputies, the sergeant said.

Another man sought on drug distribution charges, Tyrell Marcell Smith, 21, of the 1800 block of Edgewater Drive, Edgewood, was arrested Tuesday.

Sergeant Hopkins said others charged Oct. 5 with distributing ,, drugs were:

* Roy Hugo Ringgold, 31, of the first block of Asbury Road, Churchville;

* Rodney Rupert Fray, 27, of the 1900 block of Edgewater Drive, Edgewood;

* Melvin Douglas Williams Jr., 19, of the 800 block of Williamsburg Court, Edgewood;

* Ronald Sullivan, 20, of the 4200 block of Bonner Road, Baltimore;

* Larry William Eppes, 20, of the 700 block of Sequoia Drive, Edgewood;

* Kristy Elaine Walcutt, 38, of the 400 block of Wilgis Road, Fallston;

* Bruce Francis Machnic, 33, of the 600 block of Sequoia Drive, Edgewood;

* Patricia Hines, 41, of the 800 block of Fisherman Lane, Edgewood; and

* Denuva Washington Rosen, 46, of the 800 block of Fisherman Lane, Edgewood.

Circuit Court records showed that Mr. Eppes and Ms. Walcutt also were charged with conspiracy to distribute narcotics.

Another man sought in the Oct. 5 raids, Kevin William Day, 24, of the 2300 block of Harlem Ave., Baltimore, was charged the next day with drug distribution, police said.

Harford County Circuit Court records showed that Mr. Machnic had posted bail on a $10,000 bond and Ms. Walcutt had posted bail on a $5,000 bond.

Court records showed bonds on the others ranged from $5,000 to $15,000, except for Mr. Ringgold and Ms. Rosen, who were released on their own recognizance.

Sergeant Hopkins said one arrest Oct. 5 was unrelated to the drug warrants: Arthur Coleman Jr., 23, was arrested on an outstanding warrant.

Twice a crime victim

Brian F. Sharpe of Havre de Grace was a crime victim for the second time in three weeks.

On Monday, Mr. Sharpe, a clerk at Uncle Marvin's Oasis, a combination gasoline station and convenience store near Campus Hills in Churchville, deterred a would-be robber.

The clerk told deputies he was outside the store at 2476 Churchville Road at 2:30 a.m. when a man approached and demanded his money.

Mr. Sharpe told deputies he refused, and the two men began to fight. The clerk had a razor knife and slashed his assailant's clothing, deputies said.

The assailant then fled.

On Sept. 22, the clerk was forced to turn over receipts from the cash register after a robber entered the store at 1:15 a.m.
