LA PLATA, Md. (Feb. 19, 2018)—The La Plata Barrack of the Maryland State Police (MSP) today released the following incident and arrest reports.

VEHICLE STOP RESULTS IN ARREST OF FUGITIVE: On Sunday, February 4, at approximately 2234 hours, Trooper M. Zentkovich #6328 conducted a traffic stop on a black Honda Accord for exceeding the posted speed limit on northbound U.S. Route 301 and Sub Station Road, Waldorf. The vehicle was operated by Daniel Abebe Elias, 24, of Clinton. While Trooper Zentkovich was completing the business of the traffic stop, Elias exited his vehicle and began to walk away from the scene. When ordered to stop, Elias initially complied with the order. Upon the arrival of Trooper J. Lee #6848, Elias again began to walk away from the scene. Troopers Zentkovich and Lee again ordered Elias to stop and he then refused. Trooper Zentkovich attempted to take Elias into custody and Elias forcibly pulled away. Trooper Lee completed a take-down of Elias and he and Tpr. Zentkovich were able to secure Elias in handcuffs. Elias still attempted to flee and began attempting to kick the Troopers who were escorting him. Elias was secured in one of the Charles County Sheriff's vehicles which was equipped with a transport cage. Elias was confirmed to have an open warrant through the Prince George's County Sheriff's Office. While securing Elias' vehicle to be towed from the scene, Trooper Zentkovich detected the odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle. A subsequent probable cause search of the vehicle revealed no CDS, however an unloaded Sig Sauer model SP2340 .40cal handgun was located in the glove box and a loaded magazine was located on the back seat of the vehicle. The handgun and magazine were secured from the vehicle. Elias was transported to Charles Regional Medical Center (CRMC) in La Plata. While at CRMC, Elias continued to attempt escape and damaged hospital equipment in the process (estimated value of $4,000).
