Man dies after being found in pool
A Glen Burnie man was pronounced dead at Harbor Hospital Center Tuesday after friends found him unconscious at the bottom of a Linthicum pool, county police said.
Two friends found David Alan Holley, 33, of the 1000 block Thomas Road, at the bottom of a pool at 3:13 p.m. in the 800 block of Lynvue Road. They performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on him until police and paramedics arrived.
Mr. Holley was pronounced dead at 4:30 p.m. at Harbor Hospital Center in Brooklyn. The state medical examiner in Baltimore will determine the cause of death.
Friends saw the victim smoking PCP and drinking beer about 15 minutes before they found him unconscious, police said.
Five are charged with solicitation
County police charged five motorists with solicitation Tuesday after detectives said the men offered two undercover female police officers money for sex in Brooklyn Park.
Posing as prostitutes, the two officers were standing on Ritchie Highway between 7:45 and 9:30 p.m. when the men approached them.
Charged with solicitation for prostitution were Timothy Irwin Brooks, 38, of the 8700 block of Dulwick Court in Laurel; Jerry Lloyd Reeves, 51, of the 3000 block of Alabama Ave. in Baltimore; and John Alfred Rochester, 60, of the 100 block of New St. in Churchill.
Charged with solicitation for lewdness were Nick Quick, 20, of the 7900 block of Crainmont Court in Glen Burnie; and Arthur Odell Wagner Sr., 35, of the 1600 block of Clement St. in Baltimore.
The arrests are part of an ongoing police operation to combat prostitution along the Ritchie Highway corridor.
Man, 18, is charged with possessing gun
An 18-year-old Annapolis man was arrested on charges of possessing a handgun after he allegedly threatened another man during a fight in the Bywater housing cooperative, city police said.
A passer-by summoned a police officer on foot patrol to the scene of the fight at 9 p.m. Monday on Royal Street, police said. Willis P. Lewis, of the 900 block of Royal St., was arrested after the other man challenged him to "use the gun," police said. He was charged with assault and possessing a weapon, police said.
Two men sought in fatal shooting
Annapolis police have issued arrest warrants charging two men with shooting a 21-year-old city man to death in the stairwell of a low-income housing complex two weeks ago.
Anthony T. Lumpkin, 29, of Edgewater, and Kevin L. North, 25, of Beaver Falls, Pa., are being sought in the slaying, the first in the city in a year and a half. They were still at large yesterday, said Officer Dermott Hickey, a police spokesman.
Several city residents identified them as the two men seen running out of Town Pines Court, an apartment building on Clay Street where Rudolph C. Holland was found shot to death, police said.
Police believe the shooting was drug-related because they found several small plastic bags filled with cocaine in the stairwell, Officer Hickey said.
Mr. Holland apparently met them at the corner of Clay and West Washington streets, a known open-air drug market, at about 8:45 p.m., police said. They went into the stairwell of the apartment complex, and a short time later several residents called police to report hearing shots.
