Several suspects have been charged following a prostitution sting operation conducted by the Anne Arundel County police.
An off-duty Howard County police officer was charged overnight with driving under the influence of alcohol.
A former correctional officer could return to jail, this time as an inmate, if found guilty of the charge he had sex with a female inmate while he was employed at the Howard County Detention Center.
Anne Arundel County Police were investigating a death they deemed suspicious shortly before 11:30 a.m. Friday.
With temperatures anticipated to be below freezing in the next five days, the public is encouraged to take precaution against frigid temperatures as the area braces for the third winter weather event in a week.
