Police on drug bust find $10,000 of crack cocaine in pants pocket

As Annapolis police closed in on some alleged drug dealers in the Friday morning darkness, they saw a pair of blue jeans fly out of a bedroom window.

They found $10,000 worth of crack cocaine in the back pocket.

The predawn raid in the 1150 block of Medgar Evers Street led to two arrests.

Tavon Antonio Saunders, 22, of Annapolis, was charged with possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute, while Shaneice Chantel Crowdy, 21, also of Annapolis, faces charges including possession of crack cocaine with the intent to distribute and possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute.

Officers set out to search the property at around 5 a.m., according to police. While they were inside, they saw the jeans being tossed from a bedroom window. About 108 grams of crack cocaine, with a street value of more than $10,000, was in the right rear pocket.

Inside, police said, officers found more crack cocaine that would have sold for about $6,000, and about $2,000 worth of marijuana.

They also seized cash and drug paraphernalia.
