Charles Aaron Nicosia Green, 21, of Edgewood has been charged with possession and possession with intent to distribute cocaine after being arrested for the second time this month, a spokesman for the Harford County Sheriff's Office said.
Mr. Green of the 1900 block of Edgewater Drive was arrested in Edgewood about 8 p.m. Tuesday as he was being served a Harford County Circuit Court indictment, said Sgt. Edward Hopkins, the spokesman.
Two officers delivering the indictment said Mr. Green tried to flee and removed a package from his pants pocket and threw it to a woman standing nearby, Sergeant Hopkins said. The woman tossed the package down a stairway, the officers said.
After capturing Mr. Green, the officers recovered the package, which they said contained 43 bags of crack cocaine.
On Oct. 10, Mr. Green was arrested during a raid in Aberdeen by narcotics officers, Sergeant Hopkins said. Mr. Green was wanted at that time on a warrant issued in May charging that narcotics officers had found crack cocaine worth $15,000 during a May search of Mr. Green's apartment, Sergeant Hopkins said.
Deputies almost caught Mr. Green on May 5, but he eluded them by jumping from a moving vehicle in Abingdon and running away, Sergeant Hopkins said.
After the Oct. 10 arrest, Mr. Green was freed on a $25,000 bond, a jail spokesman said.
He is now being held without bond at the Harford County Detention Center, a jail spokeswoman said.
Mr. Green's mother, Jeanette Janet Green, 42, of the same Edgewater Drive address was arrested Tuesday on charges of disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, and assault and battery, Sergeant Hopkins said. She was released on her own recognizance, a jail spokeswoman said.
