Glen Burnie woman killed while trying to cross Crain Highway

A 34-year-old Glen Burnie woman was killed late Wednesday as she tried to cross Crain Highway near Furnace Branch Road, Anne Arundel County police said.

Elizabeth Lynn Servas of Glen Ridge Road was pronounced dead at the scene after she was struck by a 1997 Plymouth Breeze headed north, police said.

The driver, Sarah Marie Tully, 23, of Glen Burnie told police she heard something strike her windshield just before midnight, police said. The passenger side of her windshield was shattered, and she pulled into a nearby parking lot to call 911, police said.

Tully was not injured.

Police said they do not believe Tully was speeding or under the influence of alcohol when the accident occurred. No charges had been filed as of late yesterday.

Three people arrested in attempted robbery

A youth and two Edgewater residents were arrested Wednesday and charged with the attempted robbery of an Annapolis pharmacy earlier in the day, county police said.

Just before 1 p.m. Wednesday, a young man carrying what appeared to be a black handgun ordered customers in the MedPark Pharmacy in the Pat Sajak Pavilion to the rear of the business, police said.

When one of the customers ran into the hallway, the man fled, police said. Through surveillance tapes, investigators were able to track the suspects to the 1800 block of Shore Drive in Edgewater. Lynwood Thomas Terrell, 47; Gina Lynn Gaidurgis, 33; and the juvenile have each been charged with one count of robbery, police said.

The juvenile's name was not released because of his age.

Annapolis man charged with attempted murder

A 23-year-old Annapolis man was arrested late Wednesday and charged with attempted murder and first-degree assault in connection with a stabbing July 5 near the 700 block of Newtowne Drive, Annapolis police said.

Police said they believe Albert Clayton Brandford of the first block of Betsy Court stabbed a man after he complained about Brandford throwing firecrackers near him.

Brandford is being held without bail at the Jennifer Road detention center, according to a jail spokesman.

Prostitution sting nets 8 arrests in Annapolis

A joint undercover operation between Annapolis and county police Wednesday evening on West Street and Bay Ridge Avenue netted eight arrests for solicitation of prostitution, Annapolis police said.

Five people were charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, police said. Two people had arrest warrants on file, police said.

Those arrested - seven women and one man - ranged in age from 29 to 42, and all but two are Annapolis residents, police said. One woman lives in Crownsville and one in Baltimore, police said.

The sting resulted from many Neighborhood Watch complaints, police said.

Candidate requests inquiry into Owens advertisement

Republican county executive candidate Tom Angelis requested yesterday that the county Ethics Commission investigate whether County Executive Janet S. Owens violated local laws when she used a photograph of a uniformed police sergeant and her in a cable television campaign ad.

Angelis, a Davidsonville resident, said he filed an inquiry with Ethics Commission Director Betsy K. Dawson yesterday afternoon. The Ethics Commission is set to discuss the matter Monday, he said.

Phillip D. Bissett, a Mayo resident who is running against Angelis in the September GOP primary, said yesterday that he had decided not to file an official complaint about the ad because Dawson had stated publicly that it did not constitute a violation of the county code. "I think it's a clear violation," Bissett added.

In another matter, Angelis officially opened his campaign headquarters in Annapolis on Tuesday. Angelis, a teacher at a Baltimore high school, has worked as a police officer, in the restaurant supplies business, and, for a short while, as the county's director of recreation and parks under former County Executive John G. Gary.

The Angelis campaign headquarters is at 128 Lubrano Drive in Annapolis.
