Two Prince George's County sheriff's deputies were shot to death last night while attempting to serve psychiatric commitment papers and take into custody one of two men in a house in Adelphi, authorities said. The names of the deputies - a man and a woman - were not immediately divulged. State police said the deputies were hit by a shotgun blast. The man was pronounced dead inside the house in the 9300 block of Lynmont Drive, near Route 212. The woman was rushed by ambulance to Prince George's Hospital Center in Cheverly, where she died a short time later, authorities said.

Staubitz Jr., the former state health official convicted of skimming thousands of dollars in the State Games scandal and who was on the lam for nearly a month before his arrest last week in Las Vegas, said last night that he had fled to avoid sentencing because he was "confused" and "scared.""It was a foolhardy thing to do," Staubitz said as Baltimore sheriff's deputies escorted him through Baltimore-Washington International Airport. "I guess I was just confused and a little scared.

Turmoil continued to shake the Harford County Sheriff's Office last week as a captain suspected of making allegations of electioneering against the sheriff's second-in-command was demoted and a deputy who made public claims of morale problems within the agency was suspended, each for alleged work-related infractions. The developments come on the heels of Sheriff R. Thomas Golding's recent announcement that state prosecutors decided not to bring criminal charges against his undersheriff, Col. Howard Walter.

Several of Baltimore's Hispanic leaders demanded an apology yesterday from the city Sheriff's Department for the alleged beating of a member of their community who was mistaken for a bank robber and shot with stun guns. Rolando Sanchez, a Salvadoran construction worker who speaks little English, claims he was taking a lunch break at Lexington Market on Sept. 18 when at least 10 deputies attacked and humiliated him, then left him injured without calling an ambulance. "This did not just happen to Rolando, it happened to the community," Hispanic activist Angelo Solera said at a rally in the rain in front of Courthouse East.

Anne Arundel County deputy sheriffs are expected to vote tonight on the county's latest contract offer, the third in six weeks. The vote will come less than a day before a fact-finder is to issue contract recommendations. The newest offer is not much different from the last three-year pact that deputies rejected. That one would have crunched the pay scale so that workers would reach the top in 10 years instead of 22, offered an average 7 percent pay hike stretched over three years and phased in a gun and clothing allowance of about $650.

Since 1851, the Howard County sheriff's deputies had been working without job protection and became the last deputies in the state to be at-will employees who could be let go for any reason. Despite lingering fear that a newly elected sheriff could clear out the office, repeated efforts to get job protection for the deputies failed until last year, when Cpl. Andrew S. Mackert helped form a Fraternal Order of Police lodge. Since that time, the group has embarked on a campaign to win its members job protection rights and raise money for fallen officer and scholarship funds.

With nearly one-fourth of its deputy jobs vacant -- and more deputies planning to leave soon for higher-paying jobs -- the Anne Arundel County Sheriff's Office is struggling to fill vacancies and retain its uniformed employees. "There is a mass exodus and nobody is coming to fill the positions," said Robert Disney-Coker, a union representative for the Teamsters Local 355 that represents the deputies. Of 58 deputy positions, 14 were vacant as of Friday. Four more deputies are expected to quit soon and several more are likely to leave before the year is out. Among those leaving are the handlers of the two bomb-sniffing security dogs.
