County Police Arrest 'Wanted' Man Following Traffic Incident
Officers arrested a man wanted by the Annapolis Police Department in Edgewater on Monday morning, related to car theft charges.
A man wanted by Annapolis police was arrested Monday morning after Anne Arundel County officers helped him get the vehicle he was driving out of a ditch in Edgewater.
The vehicle was stolen, according to Detective Amy Miguez of the Annapolis Police Department.
On Monday morning, Annapolis police received a report of a stolen car and alerted Anne Arundel County law enforcement. Shortly after, county officers from the Southern District Police Station responded to a report of a vehicle being stuck in a ditch near the Safeway in Edgewater—near the intersection of Pike Ridge Road and Central Avenue.
According to Anne Arundel County Police Department spokesman Justin Mulcahy, officers arrived at the scene and learned the car was stolen. The driver was then taken into custody and to an area hospital for medical treatment, Mulcahy said.
The name of the man wasn't released and police are determining if the driver from the traffic incident matches the description given to police by the car's owner, Miguez said.
