Three arrested on crack charges

Posted: Sunday, March 23, 2003

FAIRBANKS (AP) -- Three people have been arrested on drug charges after authorities received a tip that people were making crack cocaine in a local hotel, according to Alaska State Troopers.

Charged with various counts of misconduct involving a controlled substance were Edmund L. Glenn, 42, Pearletha R. Harris, 43, and James B. Haynes, 42.

According to the charges, a trooper contacted Glenn outside his room Thursday and asked to search the room. Glenn gave permission and the trooper spotted a torch commonly used to cook crack cocaine. He found a glass vial and some plastic bags with a residue that tested positive for cocaine.

Haynes and Harris came into the room shortly after, troopers reported, with Haynes carrying a black bag and Harris a tin container about the size of a lunch box.

In the bag, the trooper found crack pipes and plastic bags with residue that later tested positive for cocaine, the charges say, and he also found three one-eighth-ounce bags of cocaine in Haynes' pocket.

In Harris' container, the trooper found crack pipes and cocaine, he said, and he also found 1 1/2 ounces of marijuana in a bedside table in the room.

All three people were being held at Fairbanks Correctional Center Friday night, Glenn and Harris on $15,000 bail and Haynes on $25,000 bail.
