Maryland State Police who responded to citizens' complaints of a suspicious vehicle on Main Street in Maugansville Wednesday night ended up filing drug and weapons charges.

A large knife and other weapons were found in the car and two men were taken into custody, police said.

Police said they found 14 packets of suspected crack and some marijuana.

The driver, Gerald Arnold Ingram, 18, of 423 Wyoming Ave., and passenger, Pablo Santiago IV, 22, of 213 Rowland Ave., were both charged with several drug offenses including possession of cocaine with intent to distribute in a school zone.

The troopers also charged them with possession of dangerous and deadly weapons.

Both were taken to the barracks to await an appearance before a bond commissioner Thursday.

A breaking and entering was discovered Thursday morning at Dual Highway Motors II by Washington County Sheriff's deputies.
