Man, woman arrested after hitchhiking holdup

November 08, 1994

A man and woman were arrested on robbery and drug charges Saturday morning after a robbery victim led police to their Crain Highway motel, police said.

Daniel Jason Weeks, 21, told police he picked up a man on Crain Highway near Crainmont Drive shortly after 5 a.m. They drove north on Crain Highway to the intersection with Oak Manor Drive. At that point, the passenger pulled out a handgun and demanded money, police said.

Mr. Weeks gave money and a pager to the gunman, who then got out of the car and ran. Mr. Weeks followed the man to the Forrest Motel in the 1400 block of S. Crain Highway, then called police.

Officers arrived and found the suspect sitting in a motel room with eight grams of suspected crack cocaine and two smoking devices. The man and the woman who rented the room were arrested, police said.

Antonio Obediah Morgan, 32, of the 400 block of Quiet Hollow Court was charged with armed robbery and possession with intent to distribute cocaine. Patricia Ann Pack, 26, whose address was listed as the motel, was charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine, police said.

Domestic dispute call ends in theft arrest

Police investigating a domestic dispute Saturday afternoon ended up arresting a man in the theft of a stereo, authorities said.

When the officer arrived at the apartment in the 400 block of Pamela Road, he recognized a man he had arrested previously for possession of stolen car stereos, police said.

The man, who was being asked to move out, showed the officer his belongings, including a car stereo. Suspecting the stereo may have been stolen, the officer ran its serial number through a police computer.

It turned out the $269 Kenwood cassette receiver had been stolen from a Fort Meade resident in August 1993. The man claimed he bought the stereo from a friend over a year ago, police said.

Duwayne Leonard Jones, 20, of the 1200 block of Sunrise Beach Road was arrested and charged with possession of stolen property, police said.
