Officers were investigating an attempted theft from an automobile at a Shell station; criminals unsuccessfully tried to open the car doors of a customer’s car before fleeing from the gas station in the Laurel Beltsville area.  Police officers were called to the scene. While interviewing witnesses and gathering evidence, a gas station employee noticed the suspect vehicle as it returned to the gas station. The on-scene police officers were alerted, and they returned to their police car and drove after the suspect vehicle.

Two police officers gave chase and caught up with the suspect vehicle on I-95 southbound.  While in pursuit of the suspect vehicle, Officer Adrian Morris lost control of the police vehicle, crashed in a ditch where he was ejected from the vehicle.  Officer Morris sustained and died from massive head injuries.  Assn’t Police Chief K. Davis said they are investigating if Officer Morris had on a seatbelt.  Another officer was treated for minor injuries and released from the hospital.  Police Officer Adrian Morris, was 23 years old and a two and one-half year veteran.  He joined the PGPD after volunteering as a police explorer for five years. He was born in Kingston, Jamaica, raised in Laurel, and became a U.S. citizen in 2009.
Suspect vehicle is a silver Acura with temporary tags.  Be on the lookout for the fools that caused this mess.  County Executive Baker and Police Chief Magaw asked anyone who knows anything about this crime to call the Prince George’s County Police.  Both Baker and Councilwoman Lehman were on hand for the press conference.  This is a very sad time.  My heart goes out to the police department and Officer Moore’s family.  I’m mad at the stupid reporter asking why they hadn’t been given the officer’s name.  Can the Police Chief talk to the family first?!!!

Last Friday one of the weirdest crimes in the area took place.  It started at the Largo Metro Station with a cabbie picking up 30-year-old Jacqueline Renee Savoyof Lothian, Md. for transport to  the 4200 block of Northview Drive in Bowie.   When the cab reached Northview Drive, Jacqueline Savor tried to rob the cab driver and it was during this robbery attempt that Savor threw a liquid on him.  While exiting the cab to get away from the passenger, the cabbie felt a burning sensation on his back and realized he was on fire.  Savor had apparently set the liquid substance on fire.

This is where it gets real messed up for Savoy.  Some of the same liquid had also apparently splashed onto Savoy, setting her on fire.  Bowie Police Chief John Nesky said that at 4:52 on Friday afternoon, a Bowie police officers driving in the 4200 block of Northview Drive noticed smoke pouring from a taxicab.  When he stopped to investigate, he found the cab driver outside the car, suffering from burns. Inside the cab on the back seat was a body.  Savoy’s mother reached out to ABC7 news to say that her daughter was mentally ill, not a bad person.  She said that Savoy should have been institutionalized but they kept “letting her out.”   ABC7  also discovered that at the time of her death, she was the subject of five different warrants for a variety of issues.
