No bail for man arrested after Fort Meade crash

The lockdown is over at Fort Meade and the base is returning to normal after authorities capture the suspect who rammed his stolen car through a gate on Wednesday night.

A man charged in Baltimore in an armed robbery and arrested after hiding out overnight on Fort Meade will be held without bail, a city judge ordered Tuesday.

Police say Anne Arundel County officers pursued Dontae Small, 41, Oct. 7 after noticing he was driving a car reported stolen in Baltimore. Small fled onto Fort Meade, racing across the base before crashing through a fence into the National Security Agency campus and hiding in a storm drain.

The car was stolen in Baltimore Sunday night when three people approached a man who had just parked and took his keys at gunpoint, according to a police report.

Small also faces traffic charges for offenses including reckless driving and driving without lights on in order to avoid being identified. The charges carry a combined total of more than $1200 in fines, court records show.
