Car hits woman at home another woman arrested

February 28, 1996

A Pasadena woman was charged with two counts of battery Monday after another woman was struck by a car, police said.

Lisa Michelle Pelland, 27, of the 800 block of 201st St. is being held at the county Detention Center in lieu of $75,000 bond.

Police were called to the 200 block of McGuirk Drive in Glen Burnie shortly before 5 p.m. by Loraine Frances Pelland, 49, who told officers her daughter had come to her house and demanded to see Christie Finch about a letter from a court concerning a ticket.

It is unclear whether Ms. Finch and the younger Ms. Pelland are related.

Ms. Pelland said she never got a ticket and accused Ms. Finch of using her name when stopped by police, officers said.

The elder Ms. Pelland would not allow the two women to speak, and the young woman hit her mother in the face and threw chairs around in the kitchen, police said. The elder Ms. Pelland refused medical treatment.

The woman left the house, got into her black Dodge and started to drive off, striking Ms. Finch who had followed her, police said.

Ms. Finch landed on the hood of the car and was thrown to the ground. The woman then left, police said.

Ms. Finch was treated for a broken finger and a bruise on her back at North Arundel Hospital and released.

Police saw a car with a dent in the hood fitting the description given by the elder Ms. Pelland and stopped it on West Shore Drive, police said.

Man stopped in parking lot arrested on drug charges

A man was arrested Sunday and charged with drug possession, county police said.

Wendell Thomas, 33, of no fixed address was charged with possession of crack cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Mr. Thomas was being held at the county jail in lieu of $500 bond.

Officer Robert J. Labs was patrolling the first block of Orchard Road about 8:30 p.m. looking for two purse snatchers when he saw a man in the parking lot of the Levitz store who matched the description of one of the robbers, po- lice said.

Officer Labs questioned the man about the purse snatching and asked if he had anything on him that would endanger police, the report said.

The man told Officer Labs he had nothing to hide, raised his hands and told the officer to search him, police said.

The officer found several pieces of gold jewelry and a small pink plastic bag in a pants pocket containing what later tested positive for crack cocaine, police said.

In a further search, police said they found a hollow metal pipe commonly used to inhale drugs. Police do not believe the man was involved in the purse snatching.
