Pair assault clerk for cigarettes

Two people assaulted the clerk of a Glen Burnie gas station to steal a pack of cigarettes, Anne Arundel County police said.

A man and a woman, both wearing black, entered the Aquahart Chevron, 251 Aquahart Road, about 10:40 p.m. Tuesday and asked to buy a soda.

Then the man forced his way into the booth, attacked the clerk and stole the Newport cigarettes before the pair fled.

Cars doused with kerosene

A Baltimore County man was arrested after several cars at a Glen Burnie sales lot were doused in kerosene, Anne Arundel County police said.

Police responding to an alarm sounding at American Motors, 124 Mountain Road, about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday found a broken pane of glass on the front overhead garage door and saw a man trying to hide by lying on the hood of a vehicle inside.

Officers saw two cars had broken windows and had been doused in kerosene from a pump behind the vehicles. While standing on the lot, the man said that he didn't want to see any officers get hurt. When asked what he meant by that, he said he had put a device under one of the vehicles to make it blow up. The Annapolis Bomb Squad responded and performed a scan with negative results.

George Wayne Parton, 22, of Halethorpe was charged with second- and third-degree burglary, two counts of malicious destruction of property and attempting to burn property, and with making a false statement regarding detonating a destructive device.

Driver arrested on drug charges

An Annapolis man was arrested on drug charges after inexplicably stopping his car in the middle of a city intersection, police said.

An officer noticed the red Chevrolet Caprice at 11:55 p.m. Wednesday start out into the intersection of Cedar Park and Glen Avenue, then stop and remain in the middle of the road. The officer approached, and a drug detection dog alerted on the car, and the officer found crack cocaine under the driver's seat, police said.

Terrance Lamar Hutton, 23, of Graff Court was arrested and charged with drug possession. His car was seized.

Teen charged with trespassing on boat

A city teenager was arrested after he boarded a tour boat late at night, ate some flowers on display and drank from a hose, Annapolis police said.

An officer alerted to possible trespassing on one of the boats tied up at City Dock found a group of teenagers about 12:50 a.m. Thursday, and one ran off. The officer caught up to him near Annapolis Elementary School, but he fought off the officer and escaped. A K-9 team tracked him to a backyard in the 100 block of Green St. He again fled but was apprehended after a brief chase and struggle.

The other members of the group told officers that they were horsing around when the suspect boarded one of the boats and ate the flowers, then used the hose that was on deck to get a drink of water. Savvas Andre Panteledes, 18, of Latchmere Court was charged with trespassing and resisting arrest.
