The SUV bore the slogan of Keystone Candigrams: “Just One Bite & You’re Hooked.” The top of the candy box featured a romantic design, and the smiling delivery woman, a plaid cap covering her braided hair, needed the recipient’s signature for the chocolates.
But this Sunday delivery, on Valentine’s Day, was anything but sweet.
The deliverer was Anne Arundel County Sheriff’s Lt. Jennifer Gilbert-Duran, who was serving a warrant. The recipient was Timothy Lawn, 23, handcuffed and led away from his Glen Burnie home for failing to appear in court on traffic charges.
The Arundel sheriff’s office used the operation to whittle away at 8,622 unserved warrants. Fifty arrests were made Sunday, 15 of them through the delivery service.
