Twenty-two people were arrested in two drug raids in the county over the weekend, police said.

Thirteen people, all in their early 20s, were arrested when the county narcotics unit and special operations section searched 724 Hyde Park Drive in Glen Burnie at 9: 30 p.m. Friday, police said.

The 13 were in the residence at the time, and detectives seized 12 grams of cocaine, a small amount of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and $3,266, they said. All were arrested on charges including possession of cocaine and possession with intent to distribute, police said.

Those arrested were: Paul Alfred Clark Jr., 24, John Seton Jr., 22, Michael Dennis Dodd Sr., 23, all of 724 Hyde Park Drive in Glen Burnie; Christina Ann Powell, 21, and Charles William Gailey, 24, both of Glen Burnie; Matthew Jason Ferrin, 21, and Maureen Patricia Murphy, 20, both of Baltimore; Stacey Renee Robinson, 21, and James David Smith, 22, both of Pasadena; Lisa Ann Becker, 20, of Hanover; Crystal Smith, 20, of Arbutus; Paul Odham, 22, of Lexington Park; and Larry Yinger Jr., 23, of Severna Park.

At 1: 45 a.m. Saturday, police said, they searched 8602 Main Ave. in Pasadena as part of an investigation stemming from several neighborhood complaints about "problem activity" at the residence.

Eleven people were in the house, where detectives found 7 grams of crack cocaine, 45 grams of marijuana, 5.5 grams of suspected heroin, drug paraphernalia including pipes and $1,782, police said. The drugs seized were worth $1,150, police said.

Police said nine of the 11 were arrested on charges including possession of controlled dangerous substances and paraphernalia. The other two people will be charged later, police said.

Those arrested were: Elizabeth Ann Rexina, 36, Sean Michael Presley, 18, Michael Daniel Hammer, 18, Elmer Dunn III, 19, and Mark Mears, 23, all of 8602 Main Ave. in Pasadena; Edward L. Goddard, 20, of Pasadena; Curtis L. Henry, 22, of Millington; Steven Rosenberger, 20, of Arnold; and a 16-year-old female from Brooklyn.

A 23-year-old Bowie woman was killed Saturday when the car she was driving hit a tree on Davidsonville Road north of Bottner Road, county police said.

Patricia Anne Golden of the 13000 block of Victoria Heights Drive was pronounced dead at the scene after the 3: 30 a.m. crash.

Golden had left her boyfriend's home in the 2500 block of Davidsonville Road and was driving her 1987 Ford Thunderbird north on the road at high speed when it slid off the road on a curve and hit the tree at 3: 30 a.m., police said. Golden was ejected upon impact.

Police said Golden had been drinking that evening and that drugs and drug paraphernalia were found on her body.
