June 25, 1993

A 19-year-old Washington man was in jail yesterday on handgun and drug charges after threatening to kill a man in an Annapolis public housing complex, city police said.

City police said they tackled Everett B. Anderson and confiscated two guns from him Tuesday night in the Clay Street neighborhood. Police said they found 12 grams of crack cocaine that Mr. Anderson allegedly stuffed into a crack in the street as he ran away.

Police said Charles Chase, of Fresno Street, was in front of an apartment in O'Bery Court about 9 p.m. with a 4-year-old girl, when the suspect approached with a 32-caliber automatic handgun and a 38-caliber handgun.

The man mumbled something about his girlfriend, Mr. Chase told police. Mr. Chase told the girl to run away, then he ran into the apartment and up the stairs. While calling the police, he heard the gunman approaching, police said.

The police report says Mr. Anderson kicked in the bedroom door and threatened to kill Mr. Chase, who grabbed him and tried to escape. The gunman ran down the stairs, nearly colliding with Annapolis Police Officer George Kelley.

Police said Mr. Anderson ran up West Washington Street, tossing his guns. Police said he was captured at West Street and charged with assault, battery, destruction of property, gun violations, drug possession, possession with the intent to distribute, resisting arrest and related offenses. He was being held in lieu of a $350,000 bail.
