Man, 21, charged in prescription, Medicaid fraud

April 08, 1994

County police have charged a Baltimore man with passing a forged prescription at a Glen Burnie pharmacy and falsifying Medicaid forms.

John Lee Fulton Jr., 21, of the 2300 block of Sidney Ave. was arrested at his home Wednesday morning and charged with possession of a forged prescription, obtaining drugs by fraud, Medicaid fraud and conspiracy to distribute drugs.

Police said the charges stem from a Feb. 23 incident at the Southgate Pharmacy in Glen Burnie in which a man passed a forged prescription for Percocet. The prescription was filled, but it was later found to have been forged, police said.

Mr. Fulton became a suspect in the case after his arrest March 3 at Lindy's Pharmacy in the 500 block of South Camp Meade Road in Linthicum, authorities said.

In that incident, he is charged with passing a forged prescription for 100 Xanax pills, police said.

Man with knife threatens girl, tries to abduct her

A 15-year-old girl told county police that a man tried to abduct her at knifepoint Wednesday morning at a parking lot at a Glen Burnie apartment complex.

The girl said she was walking from an upper parking lot to a lower lot about 11:30 a.m. when she was approached from behind by a man who asked if she would leave with him.

When she declined, police said the man grabbed her, threatened her with a knife and tried to take her into the woods off Klagg Court at the Hidden Brook apartment complex.

The girl broke away and ran for help. Officer Randy Bell, a police spokesman, said a half-dozen county police officers and several state police dogs searched the area for 2 1/2 hours, but could not locate the suspect.

The man was described as black, 30 years old, about 5 feet 10 inches tall with a heavy build and a light mustache. He was last seen wearing a blue sweat shirt with yellow writing -- possibly "Navy" -- on the front, black jeans and white tennis shoes.

Pizza shop robbed by lone man

A Glen Burnie pizza parlor was robbed Wednesday night by a man who walked into a back room and threatened a clerk who was counting the night's receipts, county police said yesterday.

The man walked into Pepperoni Post in the 300 block of Hospital Drive about 11:40 p.m. and confronted the clerk, Sandra Horseman, 28. He kept his hands in his pocket to make appear as he had a weapon, police said.

The man told the clerk she would not get hurt if she handed over the money. The clerk complied, and the man ran out of the store.
