Howard County police arrested a Savage man and a Jessup teen-ager Monday night and charged them with intending to sell 134 bags of marijuana from a car.

Sgt. Morris Carroll, police spokesman, said police received a tip that someone was dealing drugs from an Oldsmobile in the 9500 block of Canterbury Riding in North Laurel.

The tipster reported seeing several men walk up to the car and exchange something with its occupants, Carroll said.

About 7: 20 p.m. Monday, Cpl. David Ash approached the car and saw on the car seat a plastic bag containing what he suspected was marijuana, the spokesman said.

L Ash searched the car and found more marijuana, Carroll said.

The officer arrested the driver, a 16-year-old, and a passenger, identified as Douglas Wayne Zimmerman Jr., 20, of the 8300 block of Ari Court in Savage, police said.

Zimmerman and the teen-ager were charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. The teen was charged as a juvenile.

Police also seized the car.

Carroll estimated the street value of the marijuana at $1,500.
