ANNE ARUNDEL POLICE BEAT: Mack Galloway was part of armed robbery gang in 2014, now caught with gun and drugs
GLEN BURNIE, MD. – Anne Arundel Police report on July 25, 2018, at about 1:30 pm, that detectives on patrol looking for wise guys and other miscreants in the criminal-laden area of Severn spotted a vehicle with an equipment violation and conducted a traffic stop on Meade Village Road.
The Detectives with the Western District’s Tactical Patrol Unit hit pay dirt with the odor of marijuana weeping from the vehicle, providing the probable cause to conduct a search which revealed more than two thousand dollars, a digital scale, 56.31 grams of pot and a loaded Smith and Wesson .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun – a handy tool for drug dealers who compete with other thugs and heathens in a tough business.
Arrested were Mack Samuel Galloway III, 21, of 473 Mainview Court, Glen Burnie, Md., and
, 33, of 308 Rose Avenue, Glen Burnie. The pair were charged with ten counts of drug distribution while armed with firearms, illegal possession of ammunition, possession of a stolen gun, use of a weapon in a violent crime, possession with the intent to distribute and three of the charges are felonies. Taxpayers will be pleased to learn that their hard-earned money is going to be provided to pay for free lawyers for the pair.
Galloway was charged with armed robbery when he was part of a gang that held up a man at the Popeye’s located on Crain Highway in Glen Burnie on May 2014 at about 12:20 am. The gang robbed him of cash, cigarettes, and his phone.
The gang then fled, drawing the attention of police who viewed the car as suspicious. Galloway was found guilty of theft in Anne Arundel Circuit Court on Nov. 2, 2015, and sentenced to jail for 18 months.
