Three arrested on weapons charges

July 25, 1996

County police investigating a complaint of an armed man in a Severn neighborhood Monday arrested two west county men and a youth on drug and weapons charges.

Toby Lee Hunt, 18, of the 600 block of Cadbury Drive in Odenton, Cecil Bellsa King, 18, of the 8300 block of Flintlock Court in Severn and the youth, 16, were charged with possession of marijuana and possession of a concealed deadly weapon. The youth also was charged with possession of illegal fireworks.

Three Severn residents were sitting outside a house in the 1800 TC block of Hawk Court shortly after 3 a.m. when a gray car pulled up, police said. The car lights went out and someone in the car yelled, "Don't move. We want you to do something," police quoted the witnesses as saying. The three ran into the house and called police to report someone with a weapon.

Two officers arrived, stopped the car, ordered the occupants out and searched for a gun, police said. Officers Frank A. Spadaro and Ricardo W. Hawkins reported finding a folding knife under the floor mat on the driver's side, folding knives in the pockets of the passengers and three firecrackers in the youth's pocket. Police also found a bag of what later tested positive for marijuana.

Officer Tanya Minion interviewed the witnesses, who said they did not see a gun but thought the men were going to rob them, police said.
