Pair arrested on drug charges after traffic stop


County police arrested an Arnold woman and a Severna Park man on drug charges Wednesday morning after finding 13 grams of suspected marijuana in their car, officials said.

Eastern District Officer Bryan Culbertson said he saw a 1983 Volkswagen Rabbit run a stop sign at Jones Station and Church roads about 12:30 a.m. When he pulled the car over, a man and woman inside tossed clothes over something in the back seat, the officer said.

When he asked the woman driver what was on the back seat, she said there was nothing illegal in the car and consented to a search, police said.

Officer Culbertson found about 4 grams of suspected marijuana in a small bag and 9 grams of suspected marijuana in a backpack, both of which were on the back seat.

The officer also recovered two pipes, two packs of cigarette papers and two burnt cigarettes containing suspected marijuana, police said.

Brigid Erin Harrington, 19, of the 300 block of Buena Vista Ave., and Lee Franklin Clark, 24, of the 300 block of Hartman Drive were charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, police said.
