January 20, 1995

Annapolis police have arrested the same man twice in the last week on charges of carrying a concealed deadly weapon, police said yesterday.

Jimmie Lee Heartridge, 21, of Washington was arrested Sunday near Clay and West Washington streets, then again Tuesday a few blocks away on an identical charge, police said.

Tuesday, an anonymous caller complained to a police dispatcher of four men in a black Chevrolet Impala armed with handguns. Officers stopped Mr. Heartridge's car, which matched the description from the caller, just before 10:30 p.m. near Rowe Boulevard and Melvin Avenue because his car had a broken headlight and a cracked windshield, police said.

Officers searched the car and reported finding a steel knife with a 5-inch blade on the front seat of the car, the same kind of knife Mr. Heartridge allegedly was carrying when he was arrested Sunday.

Police said they found on the back seat an open bottle of malt liquor and a pipe believed to be used to smoke marijuana.

Sunday, police said, they were pursuing a reported robbery in the Clay Street neighborhood and noticed four men running from the area when the police cruiser drove by. Police said they were able to apprehend one man.

In both incidents, Mr. Heartridge, of the 200 block of I St. S.W., was charged with concealing a deadly weapon.

His passengers Tuesday night, all of Washington, were arrested fTC on a variety of charges. Dwayne Fitzhugh, 20, of the 400 block of Tennessee Ave. was booked on a deadly weapons charge. Decondi D. Mayo, 18, of the 4600 block of Bass Place was charged with an open container violation and illegal drug possession. Calvin L. Jones, 20, of the 700 block of 16th Street N.W. was charged with illegal drug possession.
