A loss prevention supervisor at Kohl’s, 260 Old Solomons Island Road, called police to report that a man was seen crushing a pill in a bill at 1:39 p.m. Saturday.
A police officer spotted the man in the store and whistled to get his attention. The man handed something to his female companion, ducked behind clothing racks and had glazed eyes when he met up with the officer, city police said.
The man’s companion handed over a pill bottle to police and said he didn’t have a prescription for it. The bottle contained Xanax pills and another pill, police said.
The man, James Ryan Stover, 28, of 109 Remital Road, was charged with drug possession, police said.
