2 Westminster residents arrested on drug charges


Two Westminster residents were arrested Wednesday after police received a complaint about drug dealing from a 1985 Ford LTD, authorities said.

A car matching the description was stopped on East Main Street about 2: 50 p.m. and a police dog signaled that drugs were present, police said.

A small quantity of cocaine and drug paraphernalia were found in the car, police said.

Arrested on charges of possession of cocaine and possession of paraphernalia were: Mary S. Chider, 20, of the 300 block of Stacy Lee Drive and Christopher L. Magruder, 25, of the first block of Sullivan Road. Magruder also was charged with distribution of cocaine.

Both were freed on their own recognizance after a bail hearing before a District Court Commissioner.
