City woman, N.Y. man face cocaine charges

Hagerstown police charged a Hagerstown woman and a New York City man with possession of crack cocaine and possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute Friday after a drug-sniffing police dog detected the drug in a car, police said.


Jullisa Small, 22, of 412 Reynolds Ave., and James Adrian Best, 22, of 1384 Hancock St., New York, N.Y., were charged after police found three large pieces of suspected crack cocaine in a flashlight on the console of Small's Mitsubishi Montero, which was double-parked at 120-124 N.
