August 06, 1996|By TaNoah Morgan | TaNoah Morgan,SUN STAFF

A Washington man was arrested on drug charges, and officers seized almost $900 Saturday after a routine traffic stop on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, county police said.

Jimmy Lee Keels, 28, was charged with possession of crack cocaine and driving with a suspended license. He also was served with a warrant for driving with a suspended license in Montgomery County.

Police stopped a man on the northbound side of the parkway about 10 a.m. after an officer saw that the windshield of the 1989 Chevrolet Blazer was broken.

The man gave police a Washington license, but police discovered his Maryland license had been suspended. The officer arrested him, searched him, and found $876 in his right pocket and $20 and a bag of what later tested positive for crack cocaine in his left pocket, police said.

Police found the Montgomery County warrant after they took the man to the police station.
