Ex-mortage broker pleads guilty in fraud scheme

A former mortgage broker who sold more than 140 city homes to low-income buyers at inflated prices and using a phony no-money-down scheme pleaded guilty yesterday to federal wire fraud and money laundering charges.

David Glen Brown, 31, of Baltimore could receive a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison when he is sentenced Aug. 17 in U.S. District Court. Similar charges are pending against Brown's former partner, Andrew Ira Bloom.

Suspect held in Annapolis in road-rage beating

ANNAPOLIS - City police arrested a suspect yesterday in the apparent road-rage beating March 22 of a flagman who had halted traffic at an intersection where a sewer line was being repaired.

The suspect - a 33-year-old Annapolis man with a history of assault convictions - was being held last night at police headquarters pending the filing of charges in the attack on Kerry Shaw of Essex.

Officers spotted a pickup truck at a boat yard fitting the description of the vehicle driven by the attacker.
