Sobriety Checkpoint Set Near Fort Meade

April 22, 1997|By TaNoah Morgan | TaNoah Morgan,SUN STAFF

County police, who arrested 15 people on drunken driving charges at a sobriety checkpoint last month, have scheduled another checkpoint starting at 11 p.m. Friday in the Fort Meade area.

Police say they chose the area because about 16.7 percent of accidents there are alcohol-related.

About 25 officers will help with the project.

Man charged with break-in at Harbour Liquors store

A Pasadena man was arrested Sunday on charges of breaking the glass at a Fort Smallwood Road liquor store and stealing items inside.

Richard Clarence Polling, 28, of the 7700 block of Sauerbacker Avenue was charged with breaking and entering and malicious destruction of property.

An unidentified off-duty police officer was near Harbour Liquors in the 8100 block of Fort Smallwood Road shortly before 1 a.m. when he saw a man standing at the front door screaming to be let inside, police said.

The store was closed at the time.

The man smashed the front windows, took something from inside the store, then ran down Fort Smallwood Road, police said.

The off-duty officer called for patrol officers, who arrived and caught the man on Fort Smallwood Road moments later. Police did not say what the man took.
