Two Glen Burnie men were arrested Friday afternoon by foot patrol officers working an anti-drug detail on Shirley Murphy Court, county police said.
Officer Elizabeth Pusloskie and Sgt. Athena Baker were walking in the 7800 block of Shirley Murphy Court about 5:15 p.m. when they saw two men come from the hallway of an apartment building, get into a 1977 Pontiac and turn on the engine, police said. The officers questioned the driver because the muffler was too loud, police said.
Police ran a computer check on the driver and found that he had a suspended license. After getting permission to search the car, the officers found suspected crack cocaine on both men, police said.
The driver, Stanley Randolph Brooks, 38, of the 400 block of Secluded Post Circle and the other man, Kerwin Paul Tyler, 39, of the 7900 block of Silent Winds Court were charged with possession of cocaine. Mr. Brooks also was charged with driving with a suspended license.
