Two Carroll County teen-agers were arrested on drug charges after a routine traffic stop in Taneytown early yesterday, city police said.

Ed Engel, a K-9 unit officer with the Taneytown Police Department, said he saw a vehicle fail to stop for a stop sign on Roth Avenue at Spring Drive at 12: 20 a.m. After he stopped the car, Officer Engel said, his police dog alerted him to the presence of drugs in the car.

A search of the car yielded drug paraphernalia and a license tag inside the car that was reported stolen March 15 on Snow Fall Way in Westminster, police said. The car also displayed a tag that was reported stolen on Regent Street in Westminster about two weeks ago, Officer Engel said.

A search of the driver turned up what police said was a quarter-ounce of marijuana hidden in the driver's clothing.

The driver, Robert Bosely, 18, of Nicodemus Road in Westminster was charged with possession of marijuana and two counts of stealing license tags. He also was cited for the traffic violation.

Mr. Bosely was being held on $2,000 bail at the Carroll County Detention Center yesterday, a jail spokesman said.

A passenger in the car, Joseph Harris, 19, of Flanagan Drive in Taneytown was arrested on paraphernalia charges, the officer said. He was released after receiving a criminal citation.
