McDonald's workers assaulted over refills

Two employees at an Annapolis McDonald's were assaulted by customers Monday night, city police said.

A female apparently became "enraged" at 1:05 p.m. when she was told she could not receive a free refill of iced tea at the West Street fast food restaurant because she had left the store. She yelled racial slurs and obscenities at the employee, then threw the cup of ice at him, missing and striking a wall.

Police said a tag number was obtained, and the investigation is continuing.

Man charged with possession of drugs

Annapolis police said they recovered a digital scale and a bag containing marijuana and heroin after pulling over a vehicle in the Clay Street area on suspicion of a suspended license tag.

An officer on patrol about 6:30 p.m. near Obery Court ran a check on the license plate of a gold BMW in the area, and found that the vehicle's registration was suspended, police said.

The car was stopped, and a drug detection dog indicated there might be drugs in the vehicle, police said. A digital scale was recovered from underneath the front passenger's seat, police added.

The passenger, Gilbert Monger, 31, of Glen Burnie, was taken to the police station and searched, and a bag containing 15 grams of marijuana and 16 grams of heroin was recovered, police said. More than $2,200 in cash was also found on him.

Monger was charged with possession of drugs with intent to distribute and was being held at the Anne Arundel County Detention Center in lieu of $200,000 bond, police said.

The driver, Juan Alvin Morgan, 48, of Bywater road, was cited for the registration violation, and his 1992 BMW was seized, police said.

4 arrested in robbery at beauty store

Three juveniles and a 19-year-old man were arrested Wednesday in the robbery of a beauty supply store in Brooklyn Park, county police said.

Police said four males had entered the store, with one distracting and physically blocking a clerk in the rear of the store from seeing or accessing the cash register while another removed an undetermined amount of money. They fled the store but were found nearby and arrested after the clerk identified them, police said.

All four suspects were from the Cherry Hill area of Baltimore City. Brendan James Snow, 19, of the 800 block of Seagull Avenue in Brooklyn, was charged with robbery and theft under $100, with the others received juvenile charges, police said.

Attempted carjacking probed

Three cars were damaged during what county police described as an attempted carjacking Wednesday night in Hanover.

Officers arrived about 11:15 p.m. to Fairbanks Court for a report of an accident and located the driver of the vehicle involved. The driver told the officers he was dropping off a friend when two males came to his vehicle and attempted to force him and his friend out of the car, police said.

The driver said that he sped forward, crashed into two parked cars, and that he and his friend got out of the car and ran, police said.

Witnesses told police that they saw the driver flee the scene, but had not seen any other people in the area, police said. The driver was unable to provide a description of the suspects, and the officers searched the area without success.

Charges pending in drug investigation

Charges are pending against a suspect in a monthlong drug investigation that culminated with a raid Tuesday on a Deale home, county police said.

The Southern District's Tactical Narcotics Team and P.A.C.T. (Police and Community Together) Unit, with the assistance of the Special Operations Section, executed a search and seizure warrant in the 600 block of Irvin Ave. and recovered marijuana and drug paraphernalia from the residence, police said.

Police restrain man in suicide attempt

Five Annapolis police officers were called Tuesday to restrain a 29-year-old man who told police he wanted to walk into traffic to kill himself and was later found to be in possession of PCP, police said.

Officers went to the 600 block of Severn Ave. about 7:40 p.m. for a report of a sick or injured man and found Tramar Galloway, of Georgetown Road, who was disoriented. Police called an ambulance after he said that he wanted to harm himself, but he violently resisted, police said.

Police said PCP was recovered from the man, and he was taken to the a local hospital for an emergency psychiatric evaluation. Police said drug possession charges were pending upon his release from the hospital.

Man, 18, charged with possession

An 18-year-old Annapolis man was charged Tuesday night with drug possession with intent to distribute after a woman said he made advances toward her and tried to enter her home, police said.

A resident of the 1200 block of Madison St. told officers about 9:20 p.m. that a man had made unwanted and aggressive advances toward her, including trying to come into her home. She told officers that he was in a nearby apartment.

Derrick Dwight Stansbury Jr., of Kensington Way, was identified as the suspect, police said. An investigation led to the recovery of four grams of crack cocaine, three ounces of PCP and PCP-laced cigarettes and he was charged with drug possession, police said.
