Baltimore County Police have charged a Baltimore County Corrections Officer with conspiracy to distribute Suboxone at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

Melvin Jerome Hodges (31) has been charged with conspiracy to distribute CDS and was released on $35,000 bail.

In early February, the Baltimore County Police Department began an investigation after being notified by the Baltimore County Detention Center about possible drug smuggling at the facility.

During the joint investigation with corrections officials, detectives identified Hodges as a person that was bringing Suboxone into the facility for distribution by an inmate.

Hodges was arrested on Thursday at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

The Baltimore County Police Department is continuing its criminal investigation.

Baltimore County Police are investigating a pedestrian involved crash near Pleasant Plains Elementary School that slightly injured two children.

At 8:45 a.m. this morning, Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to Pleasant Plains Road and Hardwick Road 21286 for a report of a child that had been struck by a vehicle.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found two juveniles with slight injuries. They were taken to St Josephs Medical Center to get checked out.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that a Nissan sedan was traveling slowly; going south-bound on Pleasant Plains Rd north of Hardwick Rd. A 7-year-old girl and her 5-year-old brother were crossing Pleasant Plains Rd from the east side to the west side. The girl was hit by the Nissan when she ran in front of it. When she fell to the ground she took her brother, whose hand she had been holding, with her. The children were not in a crosswalk.

The Nissan remained at the scene.

The cause of the crash has been determined to be pedestrian error. There will be no charges against the driver of the Nissan.

Baltimore County Police Chief James Johnson stated:

This incident is an example why parents need to have a serious discussion with their children about pedestrian safety. When walking to school, children should cross streets at an area controlled by a crossing guard when one is available. If there is no crossing guard in the area, children should use crosswalks, obey any pedestrian signals, and only cross when they have looked in both directions to make sure it is safe to cross. Children should never cross the street outside of a cross walk when a crossing guard is nearby. Today we were fortunate that the driver of the vehicle that hit the children was traveling slowly through the school zone. It could have been a tragedy.
