Glen Burnie cabdriver, 39, robbed by armed man


A 39-year-old Glen Burnie cabdriver was robbed Thursday night by a man with a revolver, whom he had picked up on Crain Highway, county police said Friday.

The cabdriver told police he picked the man up near Phirne Road at 8:50 p.m. and drove him to the Southgate Shopping Center, then to Hidden Brook Drive in Glen Burnie, police said.

The man robbed the cabdriver of his wallet before running into the woods toward the Glen Mar apartment complex, police said.

The robber was described as a black man in his late teens, about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds. He was wearing a black nylon jacket with blue stripes, dark pants and white tennis shoes.

Glen Burnie student completes orientation

Amanda Jordan, 18, daughter of Raymond and Virginia Jordan of Glen Burnie, recently participated in Salisbury State University's freshman orientation program.

Studnets had the choice of cycling 140 miles through the monutainous countryside of Maine or canoeing through the back country lakes of Ontario.

According to the college's public relation office, "The wilderness orientation trip fosters both a sense of self-reliance and trust among students." The orientation trip has proven to be a valuable tool in lowering the drop-out rate, the college said.

Ms. Jordan, a 1993 graduate of North County High School, has served as a junior volunteer at Harbor Hospital Center, participated in the Students Against Drunk Driving (SADD) organization and last year coordinated a drive to help victims of Hurricane Andrew.

She plans to major in premedicine and attend the Johns Hopkins University.
