2 men, Glen Burnie students arrested on drug charges


A week-long investigation into drug activity near Glen Burnie High School has led to the arrest of two men and four students, Anne Arundel County police said yesterday.

John William Griffith, 19, of the 200 block of Ditty Court, Glen Burnie, was charged Wednesday with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia with intent to use, carrying a concealed deadly weapon and trespassing.

He was freed on a $1,000 unsecured bond with the condition that he stay away from the school, in the 7500 block of Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd., a spokeswoman at the Annapolis District Court said.

Robert Edward Castle, 18, of the 900 block of Point Pleasant Road, Glen Burnie, was charged with trespassing, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was freed on his own recognizance, the court spokeswoman said.

Three boys and one girl who attend the school had small amounts of marijuana, LSD and crystal methamphetamine, said Sgt. Bryan Heger, a police spokesman.

Four students were charged with drug possession and released to their parents.

Police did not release their ages.

Jane Doyle, a spokeswoman for the Anne Arundel school system, declined to release the students' ages, citing confidentiality laws.

All four students have been suspended, she said.
