July 21, 1996|By TaNoah Morgan | TaNoah Morgan,SUN STAFF

Anne Arundel County police arrested nine people Thursday on drug charges after two separate undercover operations in Brooklyn Park.

Seven people were arrested in a late-night raid at a home in the 100 block of E. 11th Ave. as part of a continuing investigation of crack houses in several neighborhood homes, police said.

Brian Andrew Kisner, 50, Surrano Coward, 38, and Tonona Andres Tyson, 34, all of the 100 block of E. 11th Ave. in Brooklyn Park; George Edward Washington, 18, of the 1900 block of Patterson Park Ave. in Baltimore; Anthony Wright, 18, of the 5200 block of Brookwood Road in Baltimore; Mike P. Miller, 18, of the 200 block of Crain Court in Glen Burnie; and John Richard Adams, 25, of the 100 block of Conley Drive in Annapolis were charged with possession of crack cocaine, possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine within a school zone, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Officers seized 20.6 grams of crack cocaine wrapped in 56 bags, with a street value of $2,060, and $399 in cash.

An officer arrested a Baltimore woman and a Glen Burnie man on drug charges after following the pair from several suspected Brooklyn Park crack houses, police said.

Chancey Robinson, 31, of the 100 block of Warwickshire Lane and Diane V. Ponzini, 42, of the 1500 block of Hall St. were charged with possession of crack cocaine.

Officer Lee Whitlow was working undercover in the 100 block of E. 11th Ave. in Brooklyn Park when he saw a 1995 Acura Legend pull up in front of a suspected crack house and the driver get out, police said.

The driver, a man, talked to someone in the house, then got back into the car and drove to another house in the 5000 block of Brookwood Road, where police had previously searched and arrested several people on cocaine charges.

A woman left the car, went to the house and returned moments later and the pair drove to a house in the 900 block of Victory Ave., police said.

Again, the passenger got out of the car and went to a house where police have previously made several drug arrests, police said. When the woman returned to the car, the man pulled out a pipe, filled it with what later tested positive for crack cocaine and began smoking, police said.

The two passed the pipe back and forth as the man drove to Second Street in Baltimore, police said. The man parked the car, and both he and the woman got out, still passing the pipe between them, police said.

The man dropped the pipe after Whitlow got out of his car, identified himself as an officer and arrested them, police said.
