Three Westminster residents were arrested on drug charges after police raided their home in the 300 block of Old New Windsor Road on Wednesday night, authorities said.

Released on personal recognizance were:

Deborah R. Gaver, 40, on charges of possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute, and possession of cocaine, marijuana and paraphernalia.

Westminster man convicted of burglary and theft

A Westminster man was convicted of burglary and theft yesterday for stealing his father's electric drill and pawning it for $10 while his parents were on vacation last summer.

Carroll County Circuit Judge Luke K. Burns Jr. revoked bond for Michael J. Graham, 24, and ordered the defendant held at the county detention center.

Graham, who represented himself, offered no defense beyond pleading not guilty and implied during cross-examination of a state's witness that someone might have forged his signature on a pawn shop receipt.

The drill, which had an estimated value of $65, was recovered at a Westminster pawn shop and returned to Richard and Gail Graham, the defendant's parents, who requested that they be notified if their son is released on bail before he is sentenced May 5.


Westminster: Firefighters from Reese assisted Westminster at 5: 36 a.m. Wednesday, responding to a carbon monoxide alarm in the first block of W. Main St. Units were out three hours.


Westminster: A resident of Fairway Drive told police Wednesday that property was stolen from her vehicle while it was parked outside her home. The loss was estimated at $220.

Westminster: A resident of Yellow Lilly Court told police that someone broke the rear window of her vehicle while it was parked outside Wal-Mart between 2 p.m. and 2: 45 p.m. Wednesday. Damage was estimated at $200.
