In another pocket the officer found a packet of marijuana, according to the court papers.

Quisay. Mr. Henderson also was charged with one count each of possession of heroin, marijuana, Ativan and drug paraphernalia, according to the court papers.

The passengers, Denise Lynn Wahman, 24, of the 4700 block of of Old Hanover Road in Westminster and William Alvin Burke Jr., 25, of the 1100 block of Regester Ave. in Baltimore County were each charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

They were charged after a spoon used for burning drugs was found on the back seat and a box of marijuana was found under the front passenger seat, police said. Each was released on $1,000 unsecured bond.
