A man was arrested on drug charges Tuesday after police found him walking down the center of Ritchie Highway in Severna Park.
Daniel Eugene Watts, 38, of the 300 block of Community Road was charged with possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
A citizen called police shortly after 1 a.m. to report that a man was walking near the intersection with McKinsey Road.
An officer found the man and asked him about the bulge under his jacket. The man pulled out two books and the kind of pipe that is commonly used to smoke crack cocaine.
Police arrested the man and found another small pipe, a razor blade with what later tested positive for cocaine residue and some steel wool. The man told police he used the items to smoke crack cocaine, the police report said.
