HAGERSTOWN -- Hagerstown Police on Friday identified the second man taken into custody Thursday after a standoff with officers on Medway Road near Fairgrounds Park as 32-year-old James Carroll Midgette.

Police were not able to provide an address for Midgette, but online court records list a District Heights, Md., address for him. Midgette had $14,000 in cash on him when he was taken into custody, Sgt. Curtis Wood said Friday afternoon.

The second man, Roger L. Prophet, was charged late Thursday on an outstanding warrant for drug distribution through the U.S. Marshals Service. Prophet gave police an address on Elmhurst Street in Washington, D.C., Wood said.

The men were charged Friday with possession of marijuana, possession of PCP, possession of LSD, possession of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia and theft, according to Washington County District Court records online. They were being held without bond Friday at the Washington County Detention Center.

Both men are due in Washington County District Court for a preliminary hearing Nov. 9.

Several guns were found in the home at 721 Medway Road, and both men also faces weapons charges, Wood said.

The incident started Thursday when a narcotics task force officer spotted a man believed to be wanted by police near Park Place, Lt. R. Reynolds said Thursday.

Two Hagerstown Police officers responded and found a Lincoln Navigator, which came to a stop. But the vehicle left the area and police began searching for it, Reynolds said.

The Navigator was found at 721 Medway Road, where police surrounded the home with guns drawn before taking the men into custody.
