Annapolis, MD — Anne Arundel County Police have charged two people in the attempted murder of Anne Arundel Police Officer Cpl. Larry Adams and the attempted armed robbery of the 7-Eleven on College Parkway located near Annapolis. Cpl Adams was performing routine checks of the store when he was told by a witness of a suspicious person in the parking lot. When the officer began to investigate a series of events led to the officer shot and left for dead by the fleeing gunman.

Anne Arundel Police BeatColvin Lamar White has been charged with attempted murder of the officer who happened upon an apparent attempt by White to rob the store.

 Danielle Nicole Blake, 29, of 1681 Meade Circle Road in Severn has also been charged with conspiracy to rob the store and attempted murder. Blake is the mother of his child who won a decree of child support and paternity against White on Dec. 13, 2012. Blake could possibly have been assisting White in attempting a robbery in order to assist him in paying her child support. Blake doesn’t have any known criminal record in Maryland, unlike White.

White is a convicted armed robber who was available to continue his career as an armed robber and to allegedly shoot Cpl. Adams due to the inept former States Attorney of Anne Arundel County Anne Colt Leitess and the lenient sentencing of Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge North.  The voters of Anne Arundel County replaced Leitess in last year’s election and installed Republican Wes Adams.

White was indicted for armed robbery on July 17, 2009. On Dec. 10, 2012 in Anne Arundel Circuit Court was represented by taxpayer-provided Public Defenders Denis O’Connell and Geraldine K. Sweeney for a plea deal which landed White back on the street in a short period of time.

The plea agreement reflected in Maryland Court records shows that White entered a guilty plea to the charged of commercial armed robbery that a jail term of 7 years was imposed with all of the jail time suspended except for 54 days and he was given credit for time served for 54 days. Waltzing out of the courtroom on probation for three years with a requirement from Judge North that he successfully complete any drug/alcohol counseling, perhaps even taking a course to remedy “The Devil Made Me Do It” defense, he was sentenced by the Judge to mental health counseling, “as directed by Parole and Probation”.

Only the fools in the Maryland Judicial system believes any of this hocus-pocus has any value.

White was released from jail custody on Dec. 10, 2012 and the court records do not reflect any history of his adventures on probation since that date.

That White would be armed and available for committing crimes in Maryland isn’t news.

In addition to pleading guilty to armed robbery in 2012, he was indicted for having a handgun on his person on March 29, 2006 in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court. Court records do not disclose the outcome of that indictment.

On Jan. 9, 2004, White entered a guilty plea to distributing fake narcotics and in a plea deal with the Anne Arundel County States Attorney he was sentenced to six months in jail. With this being the Alice in Wonderland Justice System in Maryland, the plea deal called for all of the jail time to be suspended with six months in work release at the Anne Arundel Detention Center. Court records show that the probation in that case was closed unsatisfactorily.

White caught the attention of the Alcohol, Tax and Firearms Office in Baltimore which requested his case history, statement of hearing sheets and indictments on April 4, 2006. The clerk of the court noted that they promptly sent the information to ATF eight days after the request – which for Maryland would equal the speed of light.

On March 23, 2004, White was again given a plea deal by the Anne Arundel States Attorney on a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. He was fined $500 with no jail time and given probation before judgment with probation unsupervised – meaning he simply supervised himself.

Anne Arundel Police provided the following information about the investigation that led to the arrests. Police reported on Friday that earlier that morning on April 10, 2015 at approximately 2:20 a.m. officers from the Eastern District responded to the area of 720 College Parkway East to assist an officer who was checking a suspicious person. The officer was not responding to his radio.

Upon their arrival, an officer located Cpl. Adams, a ten-year veteran of the agency, several hundred feet from the 7-Eleven business. The officer was suffering from what appeared to be a gunshot wound to his upper body.

Police say that their preliminary investigation revealed that Cpl. Adams went to the 7-Eleven store, for a routine business check, and was told by a witness that a person was outside of the business acting suspicious. The officer went to investigate where he encountered a male suspect. During the officer’s investigation, some type of altercation ensued and the suspect fled and the officer followed him.

Witnesses described hearing at least one gunshot. It appears the suspect shot the officer and fled the scene. The suspect apparently had a weapon of his own and did not use the officer’s weapon to shoot him. Arriving officers immediately notified emergency medical services and began to render aid. Cpl. Adams was transported to University of Maryland Shock Trauma in Baltimore where he was listed in critical condition and on Sunday his condition was upgraded to serious.

Throughout the day on Friday, the Anne Arundel County Police Homicide Unit worked diligently and in conjunction with several facets of the entire police department on the attempted murder of an on-duty Anne Arundel County Police officer.

Homicide detectives interviewed witnesses and examined numerous pieces of evidence as part of this investigation. As evidence was pieced together from the crime scene and evidence secured from search warrants a person of interest was identified in the crime.

White was located at approximately 9:00 a.m. in the 1800 block of Meade Village Circle, Severn, Maryland. He was transported to the Criminal Investigation Division without incident. Through investigative means, White was identified as the suspect who shot the officer.

Police identified as Colvin Lamar White, 30, of 1630 Clay Hill Road, Annapolis, Maryland.

In working in conjunction with the Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney’s Office, Detective Jason Dipietro charged White with Attempted First Degree Murder, Attempted Second Degree Murder, Use of a Firearm in Felony/Violent Crime, Handgun on Person, Regulated Firearm/Illegal Possession, Conspiracy to Commit Robbery, and Conspiracy to Commit Armed Robbery. White is currently being held at the Anne Arundel County Detention Center on a No Bond status.

As the investigation continues to unfold the Anne Arundel County Police Department urges anyone with information on the Attempted Murder of the Anne Arundel County Police Officer to contact Detective Jason Dipietro of the Homicide Unit at 410-222-3415 or the Tip Line at 410-222-4700. You can also contact Metro Crime Stoppers with any information also.

“My primary focus has been the health and well-being of our officer,” said Anne Arundel County Chief of Police Timothy Altomare. “It was a cowardly act and I am proud of the men and women of this agency for coming together to identify and charge the person responsible.”

Forty-three members of our police recruit class also came to the scene to assist. We do not believe the suspect is in the area where the shooting occurred.

This is the first Anne Arundel County Police Officer shot in the line of duty since July of 2008, when an officer was shot in Brooklyn Park. There have been no fatal shootings of officers in Anne Arundel County Police Department history.
