July 02, 1996

Two Westminster men were arrested on drug charges Saturday in Sykesville after state police stopped the car in which they were traveling for an alleged speeding violation.

Kareem Otis Williams-Tucker, 23, and Steve Deaundre Cottom, 19, both of the same address in the first block of Liberty St., were charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession of cocaine, possession of narcotics paraphernalia, conspiracy of possession with intent to distribute cocaine and giving a false statement to police.

Williams-Tucker also was cited for driving on a suspended license and other traffic violations.

Police said they found more than 10 grams of suspected uncut cocaine after they stopped the car.

Police said Williams-Tucker said he was Cottom and that Cottom gave a false name, but that the men were thwarted in their attempt to conceal their identities after photo identification cards were found in their possession.

Each is being held at the Carroll County Detention Center on $100,000 bail.
