Two men charged with drug possession in Brooklyn Park

An Anne Arundel County police surveillance team has charged two men with drug possession in a Brooklyn Park neighborhood.

Kevin Charles Brown, 32, of the 6000 block of Amberwood Court in the city's Frankford neighborhood, faces two counts of heroin possession and one count of intent to distribute. Dale Charles Edge, 30, of the 100 block of Lincoln Ave. in Glen Burnie, was charged with possession of heroin.

Officers, responding to numerous residents' complaints of drug activity, set up surveillance Tuesday in the area near First Avenue and Ritchie Highway. Officers said they spotted the two suspects in a drug transaction about 3:30 p.m. When detectives identified themselves and attempted to make the arrests, both suspects fled on foot. After a chase, officers arrested both suspects and found suspected heroin with an estimated street value of $2,250 along with $226 in cash.
