Northern District
Serious Injury Crash-Glen Burnie
 
On April 20, 2019 at approximately 6:07 p.m., officers responded to Maryland Route 10 in the area of Marley Station Road in Glen Burnie for a single vehicle crash.
 
A GMC was traveling northbound on Maryland Route 10 approaching the Marley Station Road overpass. The driver of the GMC lost control in the left lane of the roadway. The driver over corrected and swerved to the right. The GMC went across all three lanes and struck a guardrail on the right side of the highway, where the driver was ejected. A one year-old child remained belted in a child-safety seat as the GMC continued back across all three lanes. The vehicle struck a guardrail on the left side of the highway and continued down the road approximately five-hundred yards before coming to rest against the guardrail on the left shoulder. The driver was transported to an area trauma center with life threatening injuries. The one year-old was transported to an area pediatric center, precautionary.  
 
The preliminary cause of the crash appears to be the driver failing to remain in a single lane. Speed does appear to have contributed to this crash. The Traffic Safety Section is handing the investigation and the case will be reviewed by the States Attorney.

Serious Injury Crash-Glen Burnie
 
On April 20, 2019 at approximately 12:12 p.m., officers responded to Maryland Route 10 in the area of Marley Station Road in Glen Burnie for a single vehicle crash. A Honda motorcycle was traveling northbound on Maryland Route 10 approaching the Marley Station Road overpass. The motorcycle was in the left lane, when the rider lost control and laid the motorcycle down. The motorcycle slid across the shoulder, onto the grass, and impacted with a guardrail. The rider separated from the motorcycle and came to rest in the grass near the guardrail. The rider was transported to a local trauma center with potentially life threatening injuries.

UPDATE
 
On Sunday, March 24, 2019 at approximately 4:53 p.m., the Anne Arundel County Police
Department responded to the 300 block of Highland Drive, Glen Burnie, Maryland for a
report of shots fired. Upon arrival officers located an adult male suffering from apparent
gunshot wounds lying in the parking lot. Fire Department personnel attempted lifesaving
procedures but the male was pronounced deceased on scene. The victim was positively
identified as Antwon Elijah Queen, a twenty year old male from the 500 block of Baltic
Avenue, Brooklyn, Maryland.
 
A second adult male victim was discovered in a room located within an apartment
complex also in the 300 block of Highland Drive. Fire department also pronounced the
male victim deceased on scene. The victim was positively identified as Antwan Troy
Briggs, a twenty four year old male with no fixed address. An autopsy is scheduled for
Monday, March 25, 2019 to determine the exact causes and manners of their deaths.
Anne Arundel County Homicide Detectives and Evidence Technicians responded to the
scene where numerous items of evidentiary value were collected. A comprehensive
canvass of the area was conducted where several witnesses were located and
interviewed. Preliminary information suggests this was a targeted incident and not a
random act of violence.
 
The OCME performed autopsies on Mr. Queen and Mr. Briggs. The OCME determined
the cause of death for each was multiple gunshot wounds with the manner being
homicide. Homicide detectives continued working throughout the days and nights
following up on all leads. Multiple witnesses were interviewed where a description of the
suspect and suspect vehicle were developed. On Monday, March 25, 2019, the suspect
vehicle was located in the 8000 block of Sexton Road, Pasadena, Maryland. A search
warrant was executed on the vehicle where suspected evidence related to the murders of
Mr. Briggs and Mr. Queen was located on the outside and inside of the suspect’s vehicle.
As detectives pieced together the physical evidence combined with the witness
statements a suspect was developed. Homicide detectives working in conjunction with the
Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney’s Office secured arrest warrants for two subjects
involved in the murders of Mr. Briggs and Mr. Queen. Homicide Detectives charged
Edwin Javier Hurtado-Valdez, a nineteen-year-old male from the 3700 block of Tenth
Street, Brooklyn Maryland, with two counts of First and Second Degree Murder, Two
Counts of First and Second Degree Assault, and Firearm Use in a Felony Violent Crime.
The second suspect was identified as Cambrea May Lynn Sieck, the wife of Edwin Javier
Hurtado-Valdez. She is an eighteen-year-old female also from the 3700 block of Tenth
Street, Brooklyn, Maryland. Information was developed she assisted the suspect with
secreting evidence and helping him flee the area after having knowledge he was
involved in the double murder. Cambria Sieck was charged with two counts of Accessory
After the Fact. The two wanted suspects are believed to be in the company of one
another at this time. The suspects should be considered armed and dangerous and
anyone coming in contact with them should call 911 immediately.
 
 
UPDATE:
 
On Wednesday, April 17, 2019 members of the Anne Arundel County Police Department's Fugitive Apprehension Team brought Hurtado-Valdez back to Anne Arundel County from Texas. There is no further update.
