Annapolis man faces theft, drug charges

A 37-year-old Annapolis man was charged with theft and possessing drugs Saturday night after a city police officer found him slumped in a car littered with hypodermic needles, police said.

Thomas E. Simms of Madison Street was arrested shortly before 6 p.m. near his home after the officer checked the license plate of the 1988 red Chevrolet and discovered that the car had been reported stolen, police said.

Mr. Simms was taken to Anne Arundel Medical Center to make sure he had not taken an overdose of heroin, because the officer found five syringes, three of which were empty, police said. He was then taken to the police station, charged with theft and possession, and released.

96-year-old woman hurt in robbery

A 96-year-old Annapolis woman was hurt during a robbery in her home Saturday night.

Edith Turner, who lives in a house at Bert Jabin's Boat Yard in Eastport, told police she had been asleep shortly before midnight Saturday when she heard a noise and got up to investigate. When she got into the hall, a woman confronted her and demanded money.

The robber pushed Ms. Turner, causing her walker to topple and sending her crashing to the floor. But she was not seriously hurt, police said. The suspect was described as a black female, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing about 145 pounds and wearing a red coat and brown shorts, police said.
