Group gets gift in memory of Frank Smith

The Glen Burnie Volunteer Fire Company has donated emergency respiratory equipment to the Glen Burnie Improvement Association in memory of Frank Smith.

Mr. Smith, who died last summer at age 72, had been a member of the GBIA and was a long-time fire company volunteer, said Chief Tom Nevin. Mr. Smith had been ill with emphysema, but continued to work at the fire company's bingo nights and perform administrative duties.

The respiratory equipment, which includes a supply of oxygen and a resuscitator, will be kept in the association's building on South Crain Highway near First Avenue.

Pizza deliverer robbed at gunpoint

A man carrying an automatic handgun robbed a pizza delivery man early Saturday morning, getting away with an undetermined amount of money.

County police said a Pepperoni Post employee was delivering a pizza to a home in the first block of Warfield Road about 12:30 a.m. when a man emerged from the side of the home and threatened him with a black steel handgun.

The delivery man gave the robber money from his wallet and pockets, police said.
