County police who went to arrest a Glen Burnie man on burglary charges Tuesday said they added drug charges after finding marijuana and drug paraphernalia in his room.

Michael James Sears, 20, of the 300 block of Klagg Court was wanted in a break-in Monday at Southgate Elementary School. He also was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police investigating the burglary of a trailer at the school, in the 200 block of Shetlands Lane, were told that a man kicked in the window to the portable classroom about 1: 30 p.m. and handed items from inside the trailer to another person, county police said.

Police who arrested Sears at his mother's house said they found a pipe in plain view in his bedroom and a wooden box containing an alligator clip and what later tested positive for marijuana.
