Annapolis police arrested a Glen Burnie man on drug charges Wednesday after a Tyler Heights resident complained that a man was dealing drugs from his car in the neighborhood.

Officers found 50.1 grams of crack cocaine in 91 color-coded vials on a suspect and in a car, according to court records.

Police were called about 9: 30 a.m. to the 1300 block of Tyler Ave., where they found a man sitting in a rented car parked on the side of the street.

The man told Officer Max Seidel the car belonged to a friend, but couldn't say where the friend was, police said.

Seidel called the rental company and found the car was overdue, then called for backup and a drug dog to search the car, according to court records.

When the drug dog arrived, the man jumped out of the car, pushed past Officer Dean Gearhart, who arrived to help Seidel, and ran down Tyler Avenue, police said.

The officers chased the man, caught him and searched him and found 10 vials of crack cocaine, according to the documents.

The drug dog indicated there were drugs in the trunk of the car, police said. There they found 81 color-coded vials of crack cocaine in a black fanny pack, records show. Police said the colors on the vials indicated the quantity and value of the drugs, which taken together had a street value of $5,000.

Hilton J. Worrell, 27, of the 400 block of Secluded Post Circle in Glen Burnie was charged with two counts each of possession and possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, drug possession within 1,000 feet of a school and assault on an officer.
