Frederick, MD.-On 02/16/2016 at approximately 5:03pm, OFC. Samantha Payne responded to the 500 Blk of Logan Street for a suspicious person call. Upon arrival, OFC. S. Payne was informed that a black male, posing a representative of Potomac Edison, was in area soliciting utility services. Off. S. Payne was able to locate the black male, later identified as Ronald Gordon, as he was driving away from the area.
Upon contact with Gordon, OFC. S. Payne discovered Gordon’s driving privilege in Maryland was currently suspended. Gordon also had the strong odor of marijuana coming his clothing. As a result, Gordon was placed under arrest. As officers looked into Gordon’s vehicle, they noticed suspected drug paraphernalia in the center console. Gordon’s vehicle was searched and suspected marijuana, over 10 grams, was recovered. Gordon was then transported to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center’s Central Booking Unit for processing.
The Frederick Police Department wants to remind citizens that if you encounter solicitors going from door to door and/or by telephone inquiring about any services you currently have, please do not provide any personal information without properly verification first. This can be done by asking the solicitor to provide his or her credentials, asking the solicitor for their supervisor's contact information, asking for the business's main number and personally contacting the company they are representing after confirming the telephone number yourself via legitimate resources. Should they not provide any of this information, please end your contact with them immediately and report it to the Frederick Police Department via the non-emergency telephone number of 310-600-2100.
