From Maryland State Police:
Not only were the streets of Harford hot because of the extreme temperature, troopers were hot on the trail of traffic and criminal violators this past Friday (July 27).
Troopers continued to demonstrate their commitment for improving traffic safety and enforcing criminal violations in the county this past Friday evening. Troopers from the Bel Air Barrack were supplemented during this operation by troopers assigned to the Office of Strategic Planning, Information Technology Division, and troopers assigned to the Criminal Investigation Division (Gang Unit). In total, there were fifteen (15) additional troopers patrolling Harford County Streets during this operation. The following persons were arrested during the criminal and traffic initiative that was conducted between the hours of 2pm (Friday) to 3am (Saturday).
1. Rachel L. Phillips, 30 yoa, Edgewood resident, arrested for DUI.
2. Jose E. Corea-Mejia, 41 yoa, Abingdon resident, arrested for DUI.

This “Heat Wave” Initiative was one of the most productive operations in Harford County this year.
Additionally, there were no serious crimes or fatal motor vehicle crashes, during the hours of the initiative, which we attribute to the enormous emphasis on “high visibility” enforcement. Please monitor the Maryland State Police website (Bel Air Barrack) for updates on future initiatives.
