Horses, Goats Removed From Severn PropertyAnne Arundel County police said Animal Control officers have removed four horses, five ponies and three goats from a property in Severn because of neglect. Authorities said Animal Control has been regularly checking the Upton Road property since January, when a dead horse and two dead baby goats were removed.

2nd Republican Announces Gubernatorial Bid.  A second Republican candidate has announced his bid to become Maryland’s next governor. Anne Arundel County Delegate Ron George said he will run next year. “I am doing this a little differently that the other candidates have.

Gilliam has had warrants out for his arrest since October. According to the Sherriff’s Department, he was featured on the county’s most-wanted criminals’ show, but there had been no sign of him until a sheriff’s officials said he commented on a traffic-related Facebook post they made regarding Tuesday’s incident on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge
