Police blotter

September 22, 1996

A 20-year-old Glen Burnie man was fatally injured early yesterday when his car ran off a curving stretch of Solley Road in Pasadena and slammed into a tree, county police said.

Glenn Francis Zucco of the 900 block of Jay Court was northbound, about 0.3 miles north of North Shore Drive, just after 3 a.m. when he lost control of his 1996 Chevy Cavalier and it skidded across the roadway, with the front-left side hitting the tree, police said.

The car's body wrapped around the tree, and Zucco was trapped until he was freed by county Fire Department personnel.

He died at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

Howard man fatally hurt in 3-car collision on I-97

A 19-year-old Ellicott City man died yesterday after his northbound car crossed the median strip of Interstate 97 and crashed into two cars in the highway's southbound lanes, police said.

Bryan James Mullane was driving on I-97, south of Benfield Boulevard just before 7 a.m. when his 1986 Pontiac drifted onto the right shoulder and struck a guardrail, police said.

That collision caused his right rear tire to go flat, and the car careened across the northbound lanes, through the grass median strip and into oncoming traffic in the southbound lanes, police said.

Mullane was flown by state police helicopter to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he died, police said.

No one in the other two cars involved in the accident was injured, according to police.

Man in car snatches purse from woman at parking lot

For the second time in a week, a Glen Burnie woman was robbed of her purse by a man in a white car who drove past her as she walked across a supermarket parking lot and yanked the purse from her shoulder, county police said.

Police said they believe the same man is responsible for both purse snatchings.

Catherine Mary Williams, 29, of the 200 block of First Ave. told police she was on the parking lot of the Mars store at Ritchie Highway and Ordnance Road shortly after 11 a.m. Thursday when she was attacked.

The driver sped off onto Ordnance Road, police said.

He was described as white, in his 40s with blond hair, balding on the top of his head.

He was driving a white, four-door car, possibly a Pontiac Grand Am or a Chevrolet Cavalier, police said.

The rear tag was bent down in the middle and could not be read.
