Man, woman charged with drug violations
County police arrested a man and a woman Friday morning behind the Citizens Bank on Fort Meade Road and charged them with narcotics violations.
Recovered from each suspect were two pipes used for smoking crack cocaine, police said. Residue in the pipes field-tested positive as crack cocaine, police said.
An officer stopped the suspects and another man around 2 a.m., as they crossed the parking lot in the rear of the bank in the 3300 block of Fort Meade Road, police said. The woman dropped a purple bag. The officer retrieved the bag and found the pipe in it, police said.
The second pipe was found when the officer searched the male suspect, police said. The other man had no drugs or narcotics paraphernalia on him and was released, police said.
Leslie Carol Reynolds, 35, of the first block of Physter St. in Laurel, and Larry Collins, 36, of the 14000 block of 4th St. in Laurel, were each charged with possession of crack cocaine and narcotics paraphernalia, police said.
