Anne Arundel County Police on Friday arrested five people ranging age from 22 to 29 on various drug-related charges after they discovered about 60 grams of suspected marijuana, drug paraphernalia and $830 in cash at a house in Glen Burnie. Police said detectives from a narcotics team went to the home on Jackson Avenue on Friday at about 10 p.m. to serve a search warrant. The warrant was in response to several neighbor complaints of drug use and activity, police said. During the search, detectives seized 59.94 grams of suspected marijuana - with a street value of about $1,200, police said - as well as the cash and digital scales.

Having determined that the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad has used chemical weapons against his opponents in the country's bloody two-year civil war, the Obama administration is now reportedly preparing to send lethal military aid to rebel forces battling the regime. Mr. Obama said earlier this year that any use of chemical weapons by the Syrian military would cross a "red line" that invited a U.S. response. Now that American intelligence has confirmed Syria has crossed that line, the U.S. response must be measured but leave no doubt that the use of such weapons will not be tolerated.

A Baltimore police sergeant found guilty of malfeasance for using false information to obtain a search and seizure warrant was sentenced Monday to three years of supervised probation, according to the Baltimore City State's Attorney's Office. Sgt. Dennis W. Workley, who joined the force in 1996, also received a suspended one-year prison sentence from Circuit Court Judge John Addison Howard for the malfeasance charge, which he was convicted of in March. Workley was also convicted of perjury, for which he received probation before judgment Monday, the state's attorney's office said.

Amid the unfolding jail scandal in Baltimore right now, there are two things relevant to the gay community that I want to bring up. I'm not sure if there are any connections between the two, or if one affects the other. But viewed together, they do present some interesting questions. First: Non-heterosexual inmates in jails and prisons across the country reported a far greater degree of sexual victimization in the last two years than their straight counterparts, according to a study released by the U.S. Department of Justice last week.

When Anne Arundel County Sheriff Ron Bateman first suggested withholding state tax refunds from people who have open warrants nearly three years ago, critics said it was a foolish pursuit. "One of the criticisms I got was, 'How many criminals have jobs where they are going to get a tax refund?'" he recalled. He couldn't say. Now he can. "There were 396," he told the County Council during a recent budget hearing. This past tax season - the first with the program fully in effect - that's the number of letters the state comptroller's office sent, telling people if they wanted their money, they'd have to clear their open Anne Arundel County warrants.

Authorities from Baltimore and Howard counties entered a Reisterstown home using a "no-knock" warrant before a resident attacked an officer with a sword last year, according to newly released police records. An officer fought back, fatally shooting the man. Police say such warrants, which allow officers to enter a home without announcing their presence, are necessary when dealing with high-risk subjects. But critics argued at the time that such cases illustrate the danger of taking residents by surprise.

A Baltimore City police sergeant faces up to 10 years in prison after he was convicted Friday of perjury and malfeasance for using false information to obtain a search and seizure warrant. Sgt. Dennis W. Workley, who joined the force in 1996, was charged with the misdemeanors last May after a complaint to the department spurred a months-long, joint investigation by the city police's internal affairs unit and state's attorney's office. In a statement Friday, Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said the department, which initiated the investigation, "has an obligation to preserve the public trust.

A jury declared Tuesday that it was hopelessly deadlocked over the case of a Baltimore police officer accused of secretly tape-recording a judge. The impasse triggered a mistrial that leaves the sergeant's fate uncertain. Sgt. Carlos M. Vila, an 18-year-veteran police officer, was charged with recording a telephone argument with a judge designated to sign search warrants after normal business hours. Prosecutors said the recording violated the state's wiretap laws. Vila wanted District Judge Joan B. Gordon to sign a warrant on a Saturday night to search a car in which a shooting victim had been found.

Law enforcement officials are watching a test program in Anne Arundel County that entices people with open criminal warrants to turn themselves in — so they can get their state tax refunds. Thus far, the results of dangling a refund as bait have stunned the sheriff who pitched the one-year pilot project. "If I had gotten 10, that would be good, too. But 134? That's huge," said Sheriff Ron Bateman. "It's baseball season, and this is a grand slam. " Under the measure adopted last year, and which went into practical effect with the current tax season, the comptroller's office blocks Maryland tax refunds of residents of Anne Arundel County, and others, who have unserved warrants in Anne Arundel.
