Burglary & Attempted Murder Arrest – 201800004829 – 700-799 Newtowne Dr – 11/08 at 11:35pm: An observant caller reported a group of people loitering in front of one of the apartment buildings and provided descriptions of two male suspects that were armed with handguns. Officers responded and as they approached the area some of the group, including the two described as illegally carrying handguns, ran into one of the apartment buildings and into an apartment. The adult female resident of the apartment quickly exited and told officers that the group ran into her apartment and they did not have permission to be there. The officers tried to make contact with the group, but they refused to exit the apartment. Officers took positions outside the apartment. Three male suspects exited the apartment and were taken into custody. T’reiko Medley, 19, a 17 year old male and a 16 year old male, all of Annapolis were arrested and charged with third and fourth degree burglary. The two juveniles were charged as juveniles with the offenses. Medley is awaiting his initial hearing before the District Court Commissioner. Officers searched the apartment and no other suspects were located inside, but two loaded handguns were recovered, including one that had been reported stolen. More charges are possible once results from processing the handguns are received. The other residents of the apartment building were evacuated until it was confirmed that no one else was inside the apartment. During the time officers were in the area they came into contact with and arrested William Herold, 17, of Annapolis who had an arrest warrant for attempted first degree murder and thirteen other related charges in reference to a shooting on 03/24 in the 600 block of Greenbriar La. The warrant was issued mid-September, but officers had been unable to locate Herold. Isiah Naylor, 21, of Annapolis was previously arrested, and is awaiting trial, for his involvement in the same shooting.

Be Thankful - Know Your Limit
Ahead of Thanksgiving the Annapolis Police Department is holding a Know Your Limit event on Saturday, 11/17 from 7pm to 11pm at Market Space. Officers will be on foot near the Market House offering free breathalyzer tests. Volunteer participants will be asked if they feel safe to drive a car, and then blow into a portable breathalyzer. Participants will be told what their blood alcohol content is and given an educational card with information on alcohol consumption and options to get home safely. For this event we are also teaming up with the Annapolis Substance Abuse Prevention (ASAP) Coalition to educate people about binge drinking. According to the 2016 Maryland Young Adult Survey on Alcohol (MYSA) half of 18 to 25 year olds who drink are binge drinking and don’t realize it.
