OPERATION CORRECT F.A.R.E                                        LINTHICUM / GLEN BURNIE

 

On February 22, 2013, from 8:00 a.m. until to 9:00 a.m., officers from the Anne Arundel County Police Department and the Amtrak Police Department jointly initiated “Operation Correct FARE.”  This operation focuses on addressing citizen complaints regarding taxi cab driver violations.

 

The detail was conducted at the Amtrak Rail Station located in the 7000 block of Amtrak Way in Linthicum and the Cromwell Light Rail Stop located in the 7300 block of Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard in Glen Burnie. During the operation, undercover officers posing as train commuters approached cab drivers and requested service. During the interaction and/or ride, officers were trained to look for any violations of Anne Arundel County Code that the general public may not be aware of.  As a result of “Operation Correct FARE”, eight civil citations were issued. Of those issued, five were issued for refusal to take a fare, one was issued for failure to activate a meter, one was issued for grouping passengers for profit and one was issued for attempting to charge excess money.

 

All violations were reported to the Anne Arundel County Commercial Licensing Division for further administrative action. The Anne Arundel County Police Department wishes to remind citizens that they have certain rights when using a taxi cab in Anne Arundel County. Taxi cab drivers may not refuse to take a passenger when requested, they may not group passengers to different locations in order to maximize profits and they must always use a meter during the transportation of a fare. If citizens encounter any of this behavior or any further concerns, they are encouraged to contact the Anne Arundel County Commercial Licensing Division to lodge a complaint. The Anne Arundel County Police Department plans to conduct this operation periodically in the future.

ATTEMPTED STRONG ARM ROBBERY                                                   GLEN BURNIE

On February 21, 2013, at approximately 8:58 p.m., officers from Northern District responded to the 100 block of Warwickshire Lane in Glen Burnie for a report of an attempted strong armed robbery.

Upon arrival, officers spoke with the 41-year-old female victim from Glen Burnie, who advised she was walking in the area when two male suspects approached her from behind. The suspects physically grabbed the victim’s purse and attempted to forcibly take it from her possession. The victim held onto the purse during the struggle and began screaming, which caused a witness to observe what was taking place outside the apartment building.

The suspects subsequently let go of the purse without obtaining any property and fled on foot behind the apartments on Warwickshire Lane towards Harris Heights Avenue. A description of the suspects was obtained and a lookout was broadcast to responding units in the area.  Several Northern District patrol units with assistance from K-9 searched for the suspects, but were unable to locate them. The victim was not injured during the incident.

 

Suspect #1: Black male, possibly a juvenile, 5’0”, wearing a dark coat with gray stripes down the side
