Two men face drug charges after arrest in parked truck


County Police arrested a Glen Burnie man and a Severna Park man on drug charges Friday after police found heroin in the truck they occupied in Elizabeth Road Park.

Police said an officer saw the truck shortly after 7:30 p.m. in the park at Elizabeth Road and Cody Drive. The park closes at dark.

When he put his spotlight on the truck, two men appeared to be trying to hide something, police said.

The officer asked the men to get out of the truck. As they did, he saw a spoon with burned residue on it in the passenger's front shirt pocket, police said. The officer searched the man and found a syringe in his front left shirt pocket.

In the truck police found another syringe with a substance that later tested positive for heroine. Next to the syringe was another metal spoon with burned residue, a clear capsule with white powder inside and a lighter.

Police charged Ronald William Denunzio, 34, of the 500 block of Joy Circle in Glen Burnie and Jeffrey Michael Lewis, 36, of the first block of St. Andrews Road in Severna Park with possession of heroine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
