4 people charged with drug crimes

Anne Arundel County detectives responded to numerous complaints about open air drug dealing in Freetown by two raids this week.

Police said the raids resulted in the arrests of three adults and a 17-year-old girl on various drug charges. They also seized 3.2 grams of crack cocaine and some marijuana, both of which tested positive, and drug paraphernalia, police said.

The adults charged Wednesday were identified as Althea M. Hall and Daniel E. Starliper of the 7000 block of Levy Court in Pasadena and Vivian Loudermill of the 1000 block of King Philip Circle in Severn.

During the raid at Levy Court, police also arrested Darrel D. Wallace on an outstanding warrant, police said. They did not say what Wallace is charged with.

Detectives said their monthlong investigation continues.
