March 16, 1995

An off-duty deputy sheriff arrested a jail escapee yesterday after she saw him walking along the shoulder of Route 214 in Davidsonville, police said.

When Cpl. Kathleen Corbin called in the report, she learned that the man had failed to return from his work-release job Monday night, police said. Corporal Corbin told police she was in the courtroom when the man was sentenced to one year in the Anne Arundel County jail Feb. 12.

Corporal Corbin, a nine-year veteran of the sheriff's department who is assigned to security in the Circuit Court, radioed for backup shortly after 8 a.m. She arrested the escapee and turned him over to county police.

Virgil Brown, 33, of the 800 block of Central Ave. in Davidsonville had been convicted of felony theft and sentenced to five years with all but one year suspended. He also will be charged with escape, police said.

Gas station robbed by 2 armed men

Two gunmen robbed a Shell station just outside Annapolis Tuesday afternoon and escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash, county police said.

The men walked into the West Point Shell station in the 2000 block of West St. shortly before 1 p.m. and ordered the clerk to give them money. The clerk emptied the cash register and the safe. The bandits also took two cartons of cigarettes before leaving, police said.

Woman charged with drug fraud

County police arrested a Pasadena woman Tuesday morning after a prescription for 90 Xanex pills was forged, officials said.

A woman went to the Twin Knolls Pharmacy in the 100 block of Admiral Cochrane Drive about 10 a.m. and gave the pharmacist a prescription for a patient named John Dutcher, police said. The pharmacist called the doctor named on the prescription. The doctor said he had not authorized a prescription for the woman or for Mr. Dutcher, police said.

At that point, the woman ran out of the pharmacy. She was captured in some nearby woods by two officers.

They arrested her, searched her and found a marijuana pipe in her purse, police said.
