Solley Road landfill will be topic of meeting


The owner of the leaking hazardous waste landfill on Solley Road will meet with local residents tonight to explain plans for resealing the landfill.

Browning-Ferris Industries, the nation's largest trash hauler, plans to begin the resealing work this spring. But some Marley Neck residents object to the Houston company's proposed use of shredded tires for drainage and sludge as fertilizer.

BFI has reduced the size of the piles of tire chips it plans to use and is building a higher screen around them, said project manager Jill R. Nelson. But the company has not obtained a state permit for sludge use. The landfill was closed in 1982.

BFI officials met with about a dozen area residents last month and promised to start a toll-free telephone line for information about the Solley Road site. The number is (800) 662-0168.

Since then, BFI has hired former Anne Arundel County Council Chairman David G. Boschert of Crownsville as a community liaison consultant, a move that has angered some on Marley Neck because Mr. Boschert voted while he was on the council to build a county jail on nearby Ordnance Road.

The meeting will be at 7 p.m. at the Powhatan Fire Hall, on Solley Road near the intersection with Powhatan Beach Road.

Man charged with possession of PCP

A Cape St. Claire man who claimed to be Jesus Christ flagged down an Eastern District police officer on Fort Smallwood Road Sunday morning to turn himself in for PCP use.

Officer James Schreiber was driving in the 8500 block of Fort Smallwood Road shortly after 1 a.m. when a man walked out of A.L. Gator's bar and stopped him. The man gave Officer Schreiber two cigarettes that the suspect claimed contained PCP, police said. The man said he was turning himself in and told Officer Schreiber, "I'm Jesus Christ. I'm your boss, and this is my second coming," police said.

Officer Schreiber arrested the man and took him to the Eastern District station to be booked. The suspected PCP was packaged and sent to a laboratory for analysis, police said.

David Walton Brewer, 34, of the 1000 block of Lake Claire Drive was charged with possession of PCP, police said.

Couple arrested on drug charges

A Pasadena couple were arrested Friday night after narcotics detectives raided their home and reported seizing 13.9 grams of suspected marijuana, county police said.

In addition to the suspected marijuana, officers reported finding two pipes, a scale and a pack of rolling papers in the house in the 800 block of Hilltop Drive.

Dennis Lee Kazubinski, 47, and Deborah Ann Tucker, 40, who live in the house, were charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said.
