DELMAR, Md.- Authorities say an argument between two Delmar sisters ended up landing both of them in jail on assault and drug charges.  

Police said that shortly after 2 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 27, a deputy from the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office responded to reports of an assault in progress in the 8500 block of Bi-State Boulevard.

According to police, 56-year-old Donna L. Cleveland told police that she and her sister, 49-year-old Margaret J. Drewer, were "enjoying an evening of smoking crack cocaine" when they got into an argument. Police said that Cleveland then stated that she became angry because Drewer had been staying with her for several months without helping out financially and she wanted Drewer to leave. The argument turned physical and both women assaulted one another and left signs of injury, according to investigators.

Authorities said that Drewer told the same story about the evening that started with smoking crack and ended with the sisters fighting one another.

The deputy recovered crack cocaine and two smoking devices while in the home, police said.

Cleveland and Drewer were arrested and each charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance- not marijuana and second-degree assault. The women are both being held in the Wicomico County Detention Center in lieu of $5,000 bond.
