Raychel Harvey-Jones, the new News Director for WNAV-1430 in Annapolis, was arrested at the station this morning by Baltimore County and Annapolis City Police.

Harvey-Jones has been charged with forgery of a public document (court documents) in what can only be called a bizarre attempt at rekindling a broken personal relationship.

In 2015, Harvey-Jones was found guilty of misuse of a computer in a related case and sentenced to probation. Additional charges of harassment were dropped in that case.

The new case came to light after a former boyfriend approached Baltimore County Police to report harassing emails and texts believed to have originated from Harvey-Jones.

Through their investigation, Baltimore County detectives believe that Harvey-Jones forged several court documents utilizing some of the information from her own case and purported it to be part of another case against her ex-boyfriend’s former girlfriend. The former boyfriend believes this was an attempt to convince him to rekindle the relationship with Harvey-Jones.  The forgeries included charging documents, a court commissioner’s signature, among others.

The full charging documents are below.
