Drugs, Cash and a Gun Seized in Ferry St. Raids

Simultaneous raids of residences just two doors apart in the 600 block of Ferry Street  resulted in the arrests of two men early this morning, Easton police report.

Arrested at 614 Ferry St. Apt. 2 during the 6 a.m. operation was Richard Wilkins, 30, who is facing charges of possession with intent to deliver marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Police say they found and seized marijuana with an estimated street value of $1,900 and $200 cash.

At 618 Ferry St. Apt. 3, police say they found a 9mm automatic handgun with an obliterated serial number, crack cocaine, and approximately $2,000 in cash. Timothy Glasgow, 30, was arrested at the scene and faces felony charges of possession of a firearm with an altered manufacturer's number, possession with intent to deliver cocaine, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Also seized at the residence was a 2005 Dodge Durango that police say they plan to search and possibly seek for forfeiture.
