A 16-year-old Millersville boy was charged as a juvenile Wednesday with possession with intent to distribute narcotics after his father turned him in to county police.
The boy's father called police about 12:20 p.m. and told them he had found three packs containing a white granular powder behind the plastic insert of a compact disc case. The father, who lives in the 100 block of Rock Ridge Road, found the case in a brown paper bag his son had brought home, police said.
The man told Eastern District Officer James McDermott that his son had been kicked out of a drug rehabilitation program. Juvenile Services workers took custody of the youth and sent him to Boys' Village in Cheltenham, Prince George's County.
Officer McDermott sent the powder to a police laboratory, police said.

Nebraska runaways detained by police
Two Nebraska girls who had run away from their homes in North Platte were held by county police Wednesday to be returned to their parents, officials said.
Sgt. Michael Feeney and Officer Earl Fox stopped a 1967 Chevrolet Impala about 12:30 p.m. at Route 450 and Patuxent Preserve Lane when they noticed the car had no outside rearview mirror. Two men, a 17-year-old boy and the girls -- ages 17 and 14 -- were in the car. Sergeant Feeney and Officer Fox learned through a computer check that the girls were runaways and held them.
The boy gave a false birth date, and he and the two men were released after computer records showed they were not wanted. Police later discovered the computer had erred and that the boy was a 17-year-old also from North Platte who was wanted for violation of parole. He was arrested shortly after 3 p.m. Wednesday in a shoplifting incident in Annapolis Mall and sent to the Thomas Waxter Center for Children.
