County police arrested three Glen Burnie men Saturday on drug and weapons charges after they found more than 100 rocks of crack cocaine in their car, which was parked in Freetown Village.

Derric James Johnson, 22, of the 400 block of Norvelle Court; Keith O'Brien Boykin, 22, of the 400 block of Hideaway Loop; and Darwin Delmontico Coates, 20, of the 7800 block of Willing Court, were charged with possession and possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, drug possession in a school zone, illegal possession of a handgun and possession of a handgun in the commission of a felony.

Officers Roger Crawford and Robert Cremen were in the 7800 block of Shirley Murphy Court shortly before 7 p.m. when they saw a white 1990 Ford Mustang.

Moments earlier, the officers had heard about an attempted robbery at a nearby gas station in which a witness said he saw man drive off in a white car.

After receiving permission to search the car, the officers found a loaded .380-caliber handgun in the car, police said.

The officers searched the men and found 100 small rocks of crack cocaine on one of them, and 20 large rocks of crack on another. Police could not connect the men to the robbery attempt.
