Police Find Crack Cocaine in Lothian Drug Investigation

Detectives also found seven dogs at the Lothian home in addition to $2,475 cash and crack cocaine, according to police.

Anne Arundel County police arrested two men, confiscated 0.5 grams of crack cocaine and $2,475 in cash after concluding a drug investigation at a home on Lower Pindell Road in Lothian on Tuesday, according to a press release.

Wayne Darnell Creek, 40, of the 1600 block of Dery Court in Upper Marlboro was charged with possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia. Police also arrested Delano Emanuel Creek, 47, of the 3900 block of Gordon Stinnett Avenue in Chesapeake Beach for an outstanding warrant in Calvert County.

After numerous citizen complaints, detectives from the Police and Community Together (PACT) Unit executed a search warrant at the home on Lower Pindell Road on Tuesday around 8 a.m.

“The goal of this collaborative effort was to combat a community nuisance residence with drug activity taking place,” according to a police press release.

Police said they found seven dogs at the house with no one around to care for them following the arrests. Anne Arundel County Animal Control is working to reunite the dogs with their owners, but said two of the animals are up for adoption at the animal control shelter, according to the release.

Police spokesman Justin Mulcahy said Animal Control was helping return the dogs to their owners, but stated that the animals were not stolen. 

Those interested in adopting the 2-year-old Beagle named Lucky or the 4-year-old Shepherd dog named Rica should contact Anne Arundel County Animal Control’s Pet Adoption department

The two dogs are on AA County Animal Controll website. They are very cute and need a new home.

The police have turned there backs on the horrific drug problem down here. I believe because the system just lets the dealer out after the cops spend days on paperwork trying to have a sure case that the judge will actually have the backbone to throw the dealer in prison, not the kiddiecamp drug court. I wish the parents down here that are dealing with this issue would get their heads out of the sand and admit their children have major drug problems and get them help instead of ending up with their kids arrested for theft or robbery charges to get the money for these insidious drugs that eventually kill your precious child.
