ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY POLICE DEPARTMENT PUBLIC SERVICE

ANNOUNCEMENT

 

The Anne Arundel County Police Department would like to make its citizens aware of a phone scheme and provide tips to avoid becoming a victim. During the past week, the agency has been made aware of several incidents involving telephone harassment and threats being made during phone calls to residents in Anne Arundel County.

 

The phone calls, which have been very similar in nature, usually involve suspect(s) calling the phone of a victim, indicating that the victim’s relative, who is not specifically named, has been involved in a car crash or the suspects indicate that they were holding the relative of the victim at gunpoint, ultimately demanding money from the victim. The suspect(s) then threaten to harm the victim’s relative if money is not immediately wired through a money transfer company.

 

In some of the cases, the victims immediately contacted the relative in question and were able to ascertain that they were safe and that the phone call was a scam, however, there have been cases reported nationally, where victims have wired money. The calls frequently come in from the following number: 301-653-5495. The callers often demand money to be wired immediately.

 

What should you do if this happens?

 

  • Remain calm and use another phone if possible to call and check on the well-being of your family member
  • Call police immediately and report the incident. Provide as much information as possible
  • Record the telephone number of the caller
  • Remember that callers demanding money to be wired is a major red flag
  • These types of scams are common, but these types of incidents are actually rare

 

(more)

Chief of Police Larry W. Tolliver takes these matters extremely seriously and recently had a friend affected by a Medicare scam. The victim in that case gave out personal financial information over the phone.

 

“These scams are all too prevalent in society and we urge our citizens to contact the Police Department immediately and report as much information as possible, “said Chief of Police Larry W. Tolliver. “This can be a very traumatic experience for victims as the suspects prey on their vulnerability by pressuring them to provide money or even indicating that loved ones have been harmed.”

Upcoming Adopt-A-Thon Announcement

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

On Saturday, May 11, 2013, from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., Anne Arundel County Animal Control will be hosting an “Adopt-A-Thon”. The event will be held at the Anne Arundel County Animal Control shelter located at 411 Maxwell Frye Road in Millersville, Maryland. 

During this event, fees for animals ages seven years of age or older will be waived.  Adopters of these “senior” pets will only be responsible for paying the licensing fee at the time of adoption. A bill passed by the County Council in September of 2012 now gives Animal Control the ability to waive certain adoption fees for specific events with approval from the Chief of Police. Animal Control hopes this special event and the waived fees will help both “senior” animals and other animals at the shelter find forever homes. 

The “Adopt-A-Thon” will feature adoptable animals from Anne Arundel County Animal Control, adoptable animals from other local rescue groups and shelters, representatives from low cost spay/neuter clinics, educational tables including Humane Education and Bite Prevention, refreshments provided by the Anne Arundel County Alarmers, live music, a demonstration by the Anne Arundel County Police Department’s K-9 Unit and much more. Please join us on Saturday May 11th and help us make this adoption event a success!

For Immediate Release:

 

The Anne Arundel County Police Department would like to thank all of the citizens that participated in a very successful “Prescription Drug Take Back Initiative”. The event was held on Saturday, April 27, 2013, and was sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Anne Arundel County Police Department.       

Officers report that there were “several hundred bottles” of expired and unused medications collected.  Collection sites were established at each of the county’s four police districts.  In total, the county collected five containers of various pharmaceutics weighing approximately 185 pounds. Each district was manned with a representative from the Police Department as well as a DEA investigator to answer any questions or concerns about medications getting into to the wrong hands and the abuse of prescribed medication.  Citizens were informed of the harm caused by flushing the unused medication down the toilet and how it affects the water, septic systems, the environment and overall public safety.

This event was held on a national level and the Anne Arundel County Police Department was proud to assist the Drug Enforcement Administration and the local community in this program.  Citizens are reminded that there are drop boxes for unused medication in the lobby of each of the four police districts.  These drop boxes are available to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  The boxes are provided so that unused medications can be disposed of in a safe manner.

“Prescription drug abuse is a major public safety issue and I want to remind citizens to continue to take full advantage of the drop boxes provided for them at our four district stations,” said Chief of Police Larry W. Tolliver. “I applaud the community’s involvement in this initiative as citizens clearly realize the importance of disposing of these medications in an environmentally safe way.”
