Officer arrests wanted man, 18, in Meade Village


Officers arrested a Severn man Monday who was wanted on battery charges and added drug charges when they found a bag containing two grams of marijuana in one of his pockets, county police said.

They said yesterday that an officer patrolling Meade Village recognized the man, who was sitting on an electrical box about 9:45 a.m. in the 1700 block of Circle Road.

After the officer confirmed that the man was sought, he arrested him, searched him and found the marijuana, county police said.

Antonio Lewis Harold, 18, of the 1800 block of Arwell Court was charged with possession of marijuana.

Annapolis woman accused in theft of license tags

Officers arrested an Annapolis woman on theft and traffic charges Sunday after they discovered the tags on the car she BTC was driving had been stolen, county police said.

An officer checked the tags on an unoccupied car parked in a motel parking lot in the 1600 block of Annapolis Road in Odenton shortly after 7:45 a.m. and discovered the tags were stolen, police said.

Just before 11:30 a.m., they said, the officer saw someone drive the car from the parking lot.

When he stopped the car, the driver told the officer she bought the car in Annapolis, but the officer checked with the Motor Vehicle Administration and found the car was not registered, police said.

Rejene Largent, 32, of 1800 Bowman Drive in Annapolis was arrested on charges of stealing license tags, driving an unregistered vehicle and driving without a seat belt.

Teen charged with break-in to make long-distance calls

Officers arrested a 16-year-old Hanover youth on burglary charges Saturday after he confessed to breaking into a friend's house and making $47 worth of calls to Tijuana, Mexico, in August and September, county police said.

Jeffrey Trout of the 7700 block of Tobruk Court in Hanover told officers that when he received his phone bill it showed that someone had made long-distance calls on his telephone while he and his family were on vacation in August and early last month.

Mr. Trout said he suspected a friend of his son because the boy previously had made calls to Tijuana on his phone without permission and because the youth's girlfriend recently had moved there, police said.

Police went to the youth's house, where his mother told them she would bring her son in for questioning later in the day.

When his mother brought him in, the teen-ager confessed to breaking into the Trout house while the family was gone and placing four telephone calls to Tijuana, police said.

Police charged him as a juvenile with fourth-degree burglary.
