White Marsh

Drug arrest -- Two Virginia men were arrested Saturday by Maryland Transportation Authority Police and charged with drug violations after the driver of the rented car in which they were traveling was stopped for speeding on southbound Interstate 95 in White Marsh. After police smelled burning marijuana coming from the 2007 Chevrolet, they searched the vehicle and found 80 grams of cocaine hidden under the console and wrapped in layers of plastic covered with grease. Police said the grease was used in an attempt to prevent detection of the cocaine by a drug-sniffing dog. Charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine and possession of marijuana were Charles Henry Wright Jr., 28, and Mikon Alexander Jones, 28, both of Dale City. They were being held at the county detention center in Towson on $500,000 bail each.
