Police Impersonator & Extortion / Linthicum
 
On September 16, 2019, the Anne Arundel County Police Department’s Vice Unit received a tip regarding prostitution occurring at a Linthicum area hotel. Based on this information, detectives were able to identify the female engaging in prostitution and interview her. During an interview, the female advised detectives a male had visited her at her hotel room on Saturday, September 14, 2019 and had identified himself as a police officer. She advised this person was holding what she believed to be a handheld police radio. This person demanded an amount of money in exchange for not being arrested. Vice detectives conducted an investigation and were able to identify and arrest the suspect. He was found to be in possession of a canister of pepper spray with the word “POLICE” in white letters, a stun gun with a “POLICE” sticker and a small portable radio. The suspect was located and charged with impersonating a police officer and extortion - less than $1000.00. Just to be clear, this suspect is not and has never been an Anne Arundel County Police Officer.

Homicide / Pasadena
 
On September 19, 2019 at approximately 9:30 a.m. officers responded to the 1400 block of Orr Court in Pasadena for a threats complaint. The homeowner, Gregory Korwek (9-6-79, pictured below) advised that an acquaintance, Jeffrey Dickinson (1-18-75) called him, made threats and was en route to his house. Korwek went on to say that Dickinson should be on a scooter coming from the area of Duvall Highway in Pasadena. When officers arrived on scene Korwek ran up to them stating that he just shot Dickinson. Officers immediately rendered medical aid and summoned the Fire Department. Dickinson was declared deceased by Fire Department personnel in the driveway of the residence.
 
Homicide detectives worked through the night, serving search warrants and conducting interviews. During their investigation they learned that Korwek was a prohibited possessor due to a previous felony conviction. Right now, Korwek has been charged with the prohibited possession charges and is being held without bond. Homicide detectives are still gathering and sorting through evidence, once that is complete it will be determined if additional charges will be filed against Korwek for the shooting death of Dickinson.
 
This is still an extremely active investigation and anyone with any information is asked to call the Homicide Unit at 410-222-4731 or the TipLine 410-222-4700.
