BALTIMORE, MD – During a traffic stop earlier this week, the Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) Police arrested four people from Baltimore who were in possession of two loaded handguns and marijuana. 

On Feb. 7, an MDTA Police Officer stopped 31-year-old Terry Dewayne Jones, Jr., on northbound I-95 in Baltimore County for an equipment violation on a Buick Sedan. During a subsequent probable cause search of the vehicle, officers located more than one pound of marijuana, a digital scale and two loaded handguns, one of which was reported stolen from Pennsylvania.  Jones and passenger’s 19-year-old Amber Curtis, 19-year-old Sabrina Hope Curtis and 28-year-old Dwight Trevor Weather were taken into custody without incident.

The MDTA Police charged all four suspects with two counts of possession of a firearm during a drug trafficking crime; two counts of engaging in drug trafficking while carrying, wearing and transporting a firearm; one count of possessing a stolen firearm; possession of CDS marijuana; possession of CDS hashish; and possession of CDS paraphernalia.

MDTA POLICE STEPPING UP

IMPAIRED DRIVING ENFORCEMENT

ON SUPER BOWL SUNDAY

NOTHING SUPER ABOUT JAIL - DRIVE SOBER

#makeaplan

BALTIMORE, MD - On Feb. 5, Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) Police will be out enforcing impaired, distracted and aggressive driving on Super Bowl Sunday.

"We want football fans to enjoy themselves during the big game. Be responsible and pass the keys to a sober driver," said MDTA Police Chief Col. Jerry Jones.

The Super Bowl is meant to be fun but not when it comes to drinking and driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 29 percent of all people killed in motor-vehicle crashes in the United States in 2015 were killed in crashes involving an impaired driver.

The MDTA Police want to remind you to have a three step game plan prior to going to your Super Bowl party.

1. Choose a designated driver.

2. Call a taxi or ride share service.

3. Take public transportation.

The MDTA Police supports the "Toward Zero Deaths" campaign - a partnership to save lives and prevent injuries on Maryland's roadways. For more information, visit towardzerodeathsmd.com.
