Inmate on work-release is charged in mugging

September 28, 1994

A work-release inmate of the Anne Arundel County Detention Center allegedly beat and robbed an Odenton man Monday morning at the intersection of Telegraph and Annapolis roads, county police said yesterday.

The victim, Patrick Marcel Dyer, 27, was bruised on the arm and shoulder but did not need medical attention, police said.

Mr. Dyer told police that a man walked up to him about 11:30 a.m. at the intersection, pulled out a gun and said, "Get in the car. We're going to settle this."

Mr. Dyer refused, and the two fought. The man took $100 from the victim's pocket, threatened to get him later, then got into a car and drove off.

Police spokesman Randy Bell said the department obtained a warrant charging Michael Stephen Foster, 27, with attempted abduction and robbery.

Foster of the 1200 block of Scotts Manor Court was in custody yesterday at the Detention Center, said Superintendent Richard Baker.

Thieves haul away trailer full of coats

A trailer loaded with two aircraft pallets and 100 to 150 boxes of London Fog coats, all valued at $155,000, was stolen Saturday night from the lot of Scalea's Airport Service in the 2600 block of Cabover Drive in Hanover, county police said yesterday.

A driver for the company saw the trailer on the lot about 7 p.m. Saturday, but another said it wasn't there at 10:30 p.m.

James A. Baker, 47, owner of the business in the BWI Commerce Park, told police the freight had been sitting in the trailer since Sept. 9. The thief or thieves simply backed a tractor truck under the 20-year-old trailer and drove off with the cargo, police said.
