August 06, 1999|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Baltimore police arrested a man on charges of drug dealing yesterday and seized narcotics from his car, and more drugs and $61,000 cash from his apartment in Baltimore County, a spokeswoman said.

The man is suspected of supplying cocaine to the northeastern, eastern and southwestern sections of the city, said Agent Ragina Cooper, a police spokeswoman.

Cooper said the man was arrested about 1 p.m. when police stopped his car in Northeast Baltimore. She said several ounces of cocaine were found in a hollowed-out section of the car's steering column.

Kevin Davis, 30, of the 6700 block of Collinsdale Road in Hillendale, near the northeast city line, was charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, Cooper said. She said Davis was processed at Central Booking and Intake Center, pending a bail hearing.
