Westminster police arrested a 21-year-old man and three juveniles Wednesday on drug and other charges after searching a house in the 100 block of Pennsylvania Ave.
Earl Nobles, 21, of no fixed address, was arrested on a warrant charging distribution and possession of drugs, police said. He was released on his own recognizance from the Carroll County Detention Center in Westminster.
A 16-year-old girl who lived at the residence was charged with possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia.
Another 16-year-old Westminster girl was charged with attempted breaking and entering and malicious destruction at the Main Street Cafe, 124 E. Main St., on June 18.
Police said a window was broken and telephones wires were cut during that incident.
A 16-year-old Westminster boy was charged with distribution of an unspecified noncontrolled substance that he allegedly sold to city police the night before the search.
Police said another resident, a woman who is the mother of one of the 16-year-old girls, faces charges of maintaining a common nuisance.
Police conducted a search of the home after a two-week investigation in which officers allegedly bought a $50 rock of crack cocaine from a resident there. Police said they found traces of cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia during the search.
