Woman charged in filing false report

A 38-year-old Westminster woman who told police she was robbed earlier this month was charged yesterday with making a false report.

Pamela D. Daniel, of the 200 block of E. Main St., was served with a criminal summons and will appear for a preliminary hearing May 10.

The woman reported she was robbed of an undisclosed amount of money as she got out of her car near her house about 1:45 a.m. March 3.

She told police the suspect held his hand in his pocket as though armed, and provided investigators with a composite sketch of the assailant.

Detective Lt. Dean Brewer said his investigation revealed the incident was not a robbery, but a drug deal gone bad.

APolice said Ms. Daniel met a man in the Charles Street area in an attempt to purchase crack cocaine.

The man rode with Ms. Daniel to Pennsylvania Avenue, where he allegedly purchased drugs that he then sold to the woman for $75. The drugs were actually pieces of soap, police said.

State OKs transfer of Open Space money

The state Board of Public Works has approved a Westminster request to transfer Program Open Space money from one project to another.

The transfer of $11,250 will reimburse the city for the state's share of a $36,600 project to install a 30-space parking lot at

King Park.

Westminster asked the board to transfer the money from a landscaping allocation for the park, on Bishop and South Center streets, which will be financed with federal money, said Thomas B. Beyard, city director of planning and public works.
