Mount Airy woman mugged at BWI

June 10, 1994

A 52-year-old Mount Airy woman was knocked to the ground and robbed early yesterday by a man who snatched her purse on the north parking lot of the Westinghouse building at Baltimore-Washington International Airport, police said.

Williemae Jackson, who lives on Old National Pike, told police she had just arrived at work shortly before 3 a.m. when she saw a taxi parked on the Westinghouse lot. As she locked her car and prepared to enter the building, the man who had been sitting in the cab walked toward her, police said.

Ms. Jackson told police she screamed. The man told her not to scream and put his hand in his pocket as if he had a gun, police said. When Ms. Jackson screamed a second time, the man knocked her down, grabbed her purse and ran back the cab.

The car, which police said had been stolen in Baltimore, was last seen northbound on Route 170.

A Glen Burnie man was arrested on drug charges Wednesday evening at the Nursery Road light rail station, police said.

Police said the man tried to speed out of the lot when officers arrived and that he nearly drove into a marked patrol car. Police also said the man dropped a plastic bag on the ground before he got out of his car.

Police questioned the man and found four packs of suspected crack cocaine and a pack of cigarette rolling papers. The bag on the ground also contained suspected crack cocaine, police said.

David Edward Harrell, 32, of the 600 block of Binsted Road, was charged with possession of crack cocaine and narcotics paraphernalia.
