Police: Harwood Woman Busted for Prostitution; Two ‘Car vs. Pedestrian’ Incidents Leave One Dead, One Injured
Anne Arundel County Police arrested two women in connection with prostitution activities in the area of Crain Highway and 5th Avenue in Glen Burnie, spokesman Justin Mulcahy said. Police were alerted to the area after citizens complained about prostitutes loitering in the area. On Aug. 20, around 12:30 a.m., undercover detectives said they were approached by the two women, Angela Marie Adcock, 48, of Glen Burnie, and Nichole Renee Vanmeter, 22, of Harwood, who agreed to perform, “sexual/lewd acts in exchange for money,” Mulcahy said. The two women were charged accordingly.
In a separate incident in Gambrills, Mulcahy said that a 69-year-old woman is in critical condition after being hit by a car in the area of Strawberry Lake Way at Black Gum Way. Police said that the accident happened on Aug. 21 a little after midnight. There they found Ellen Sanna Foster of Odenton had been hit by a car. She was flown to Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore with potentially life-threatening injuries, the police report said.
Traffic investigators determined that Foster was crossing the road outside of the crosswalk and was struck by a 2008 Toyota Prius driven by Michell Brent Haven, 64, of Odenton. Police said that the cause of the crash appears to be pedestrian error. Mulcahy said that neither alcohol nor speed appeared to be a factor in the crash.
The report indicated that Foster is in critical but stable condition.
Police are also asking for the public’s help in a fatal pedestrian crash in Pasadena. Around 5 p.m. on Tuesday, police were called to Bayside Beach Road at Bellhaven Road for a reported injured person. Once there, officers found a woman lying on the edge of Bayside Beach Road. She was deceased. Mulcahy said that police believe she had been hit by a car.
Traffic investigators believe she was hit by a Mercedes Benz 500 Series car, ranging in year from 1982 to 1991. There would be damage to the right front turn signal assembly, hood and right fender.
Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the vehicle and driver in this case. The victim has not been identified. Mulcahy said that the case is being actively investigated by members of the Traffic Safety Section, the Homicide Unit and Eastern District Detectives. He said that preliminary investigation indicates that pedestrian error may have been a factor in this crash, while excessive speed does not appear to be a factor.
