Pair face drug paraphernalia charge

A county police officer, called to quell a domestic quarrel at a Glen Burnie home, arrested the couple after the officer found a cocaine smoking pipe on a coffee table in the house, police said.

Northern District Officer Stefanie Samler went to a home in the 200 block of Georgia Ave. N.E. about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday to investigate a reported quarrel.
