Porch, Rearview, Pedestrian Lead HdG Police to Drug Arrests
The Havre de Grace Police Department made five drug-related arrests this week in separate cases.
Two Havre de Grace residents were charged with possession of marijuana after an officer saw them do a "hand-to-hand buy" at 10:55 a.m. Tuesday, according to police.
On Nov. 6, a Havre de Grace police officer on patrol reportedly observed Jamar Terrell Coleman, 23, sitting on a front porch on the 600 block of Congress Ave., when a juvenile approached him, sold him something and walked away.
“The juvenile was later charged with possession of…marijuana and released to his mother,” Julie Morgan, spokeswoman for the Havre de Grace Police Department, told Patch.
Coleman, of the 400 block of Battery Dr., was charged with possession of marijuana and taken to the Harford County Detention Center, according to Morgan.
The previous day, a Conowingo man was also arrested on drug charges in Havre de Grace.
At 11:08 a.m. on Nov. 5, an officer pulled over a man for driving with too many things hanging on his rearview mirror on the 1200 block of Pulaski Hwy., Morgan said.
The officer noticed the driver, Duane Allan Duncan, 22, of Conowingo, was “a bit slow in his speech,” said Morgan, so the officer called for a K-9 to sniff the car; after the K-9 alerted officers to the presence of drugs in the vehicle, police said they found marijuana and synthetic drugs.
Duncan was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled and dangerous substance and possession of a synthetic controlled and dangerous substance.
Police charged a Bel Air woman with possession of paraphernalia Thursday.
Melisa Madeline Cassel-Kozlowski, 37, of Bel Air, was pulled over on the 700 block of Tydings Rd. for driving on a suspended license, according to police.
During the traffic stop, which occurred at 11:48 p.m. on Nov. 1, officers located a glass pipe, said Jeff Gilpin, spokesman for the Havre de Grace Police Department.
The previous day, on Halloween, the Havre de Grace Police Department made another drug-related arrest of a Harford County citizen.
Officers stopped Tracy Scott, 21, of Edgewood, at 1:56 p.m. on Wednesday for walking on a travel portion of the roadway on the 100 block of Seneca Ave., said Gilpin. Subsequently, she was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana.
