Good News – On 03/16 officers recovered a loaded handgun from a 15 year male in the 1400 block of Tyler Av.  At 11pm officers were investigating a report of someone selling illegal drugs in the area when they encountered the 15 year old.  He was asked to keep his hands out of his pockets while the officers were talking to him, but he kept reaching for his right pants pocket.  After officers controlled his hands a loaded handgun was found in his right pants pocket.  A subsequent search of the juvenile recovered suspected cocaine and heroin and over $500 in cash.  The 15 year old male from Annapolis was charged with handgun violations and drug charges on a juvenile citation and released to a guardian. 
 
There are no preventable Part One offenses to report this morning. Part One offenses are those incidents we report to the MD State Police and the F.B.I. These incidents include homicides, robberies, burglaries, rapes, serious assaults, and thefts.
 
St. Patrick’s Day
Widely celebrated across the country, St. Patrick’s Day is one of the deadliest holidays due to the number of drunk drivers on the road. The St. Patrick’s Day holiday period (6 p.m. March 16 to 5:59 a.m. March 18) from 2010 to 2014 saw the loss of 266 lives due to drunk-driving crashes. Officers will be on patrol throughout the region, so make sure you obey the law: Don’t drink and drive, and don’t let your friends do it, either.  Before celebrating, decide whether you’ll drink or you’ll drive.  If you choose to drink, designate a sober, reliable driver to get you home safely from the party.  If you’re planning on driving, commit to not drinking.  The last thing you want is to ride home with a cop.
