Philadelphia man wanted in Pa. case charged in Arundel

A 20-year-old Philadelphia man wanted in a homicide there was arrested after police seized more than 73 grams of crack cocaine, a sawed-off shotgun and drug paraphernalia from his Brooklyn Park motel room, Anne Arundel County police said yesterday.

Acting on an anonymous tip, county police said they arrested John C. Dwyer, of the 2400 block of Carlisle Street in Philadelphia, at 10:45 p.m. Tuesday after a brief foot chase. Police also arrested Tiffany L. Jackson, 19, of the 5400 block of Sunner Street in Philadelphia, at the Budget Plaza Motel at 4806 Ritchie Highway.

In addition to the drugs and the shotgun, police said they recovered $1,900 in cash, a portable scale and more than 1,800 baggies. Police estimated the street value of the drugs at $9,000.

Charged with drug possession and distribution and weapons violations, Dwyer was being held at the County Detention Center in Annapolis in lieu of $100,000 bond, jail officials said. County police provided no details of the Pennsylvania case against Dwyer, or any extradition proceedings.

Jackson, whose bail was set at $75,000, was charged with drug possession and aiding a fugitive. Bail review hearings for both suspects are scheduled for today.
