Police arrested a Glen Burnie man on gun charges after he was involved in a hit-and-run Feb. 18 in the area of Montrose Road and Fort Smallwood Road in Pasadena, according to an Anne Arundel County police spokesman.
According to online court records, Jason Schmale, 26, of the 900 block of Chase Walk in Glen Burnie, was charged with concealing a dangerous weapon, having a handgun in a vehicle, and having a handgun in his possession.
At 7:45 a.m. Feb. 18, officers responded to the area of Montrose Road and Fort Smallwood Road in Pasadena for a hit and run, police said. Officers said they discovered that a vehicle traveled off Fort Smallwood Road, struck a street sign and drove through the wooden fence of a residence located in the unit block of Montrose Road, according to the police press release.
The vehicle then fled in an unknown direction, but left behind the front bumper of the vehicle with the MD registration still attached, according to police.
When police were searching the area where the vehicle was registered, an officer conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle in question.
While questioning the driver, officers said they located an empty holster attached to his belt. A search inside of the vehicle yielded a loaded 9mm Ruger on the passenger side floorboard in a case, according to police.
