October 19, 1998|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Police arrested 45 people on traffic and other charges during the weekend on Northeast Baltimore streets in an effort to curb drug-dealing in the Harford Road corridor.

Officers from the Northeastern District, vehicular and mounted units of the traffic division and officers with police dogs closed the 2700 blocks of Fenwick and Tivoly avenues and the 1700, 1800 and 1900 blocks of E. 28th St. on Friday, Saturday and yesterday in "an effort to stabilize the neighborhood and restore order," said Lt. Laurie Zuromski of the Northeastern District.

Zuromski said 10 men were arrested on drug charges, several for driving under the influence and at least one for possession of a deadly weapon, a plastic replica of a .44-caliber Magnum.

Zuromski said 383 traffic tickets were issued, and more than 500 people were interviewed.
