Man accused of distributing crack cocaine

March 28, 1996

A man accused of distributing crack cocaine in Westminster is being held on $50,000 bond at the Carroll County Detention Center after he was arrested at his O'Donnell Heights home in Southeast Baltimore by Westminster police Tuesday night.

Westminster police said they obtained an arrest warrant for Robert Lamont Bryant, 19, of the 1200 block of Gregor Way after linking him to a Westminster woman with whom he recently lived.

On March 20, Westminster officers raided the woman's residence on West Green Street in Westminster and reported finding a safe containing crack and powder cocaine, two handguns, a sawed-off shotgun and paraphernalia used to weigh and package narcotics.

The woman still is being sought, city police said.

Mr. Bryant also faces charges of possession of cocaine, conspiracy to distribute cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia and weapons violations.

The cocaine seized from the safe is worth an estimated $2,000, city police said.

Concrete plant expected to be opposed at hearing

Neighbors are expected to oppose a Pennsylvania corporation's request to put a concrete plant in Finksburg at a zoning hearing tomorrow.

The hearing before the county Board of Zoning Appeals is scheduled at 9: 30 a.m. at the Agriculture Center, 700 Agriculture Lane, Westminster. It was postponed in February.

Neighbors of the proposed Toma Concrete and Materials Inc. plant at 2601 Emory Road expressed concerns last month about potential noise and increased truck traffic.

Several also said they plan to ask the appeals board to require a tree buffer if the plant is built.
