A Northwest Baltimore man who was convicted of drug possession in April after police found marijuana and crack cocaine in his clothing was sentenced yesterday to a year in the Carroll County Detention Center.
Circuit Judge Francis M. Arnold originally sentenced Gary L. Hayes, 19, of the Forest Park area to five years but suspended all but 12 months.
Hayes was arrested in May 1996 after Westminster police received a tip that occupants of a silver-colored foreign car would be delivering drugs to an apartment on Washington Road.
A car matching that description was stopped, and during a search with a police dog, officers found a plastic bag containing 5.7 grams of marijuana in Hayes' pocket and plastic bags containing 26 grams of cocaine hidden in his underwear, prosecutor Theresa M. Adams said.
Adams said the drugs had a street value of $5,000.
