3 Arundel men charged with hunting inside park

January 24, 1994

Three Anne Arundel County men have been charged with illegal hunting in a county park near Marriottsville after Maryland Natural Resources Police responded to a call about three armed men walking on private property.

Police say each of the men faces fines of $180 for allegedly hunting upland game without wearing blaze orange and being on property without permission of the landowner.

Authorities said the men were hunting rabbits on Howard County Department of Parks and Recreation property at the new Alpha Ridge Park on Old Frederick Road on Thursday evening.

Cited were Scott William Jones, 39, and Thomas Allen Wagner, 33, both of Glen Burnie, and Paul Burton Young Jr., 34, of Pasadena.

Mr. Young also was charged with failing to obey a lawful order of a police officer. His trial date is scheduled for March 14 in Ellicott City. The maximum sentence for that offense is a $500 fine or three months in jail.

The department has established a public file on the operation that contains records relating to the removal of drums and the environmental assessment of the site. The file is available for review at the Bureau of Environmental Services, George Howard Building, 3430 Court House Drive, Ellicott City.
