MAN ARRESTED ON DRUG, CAR THEFT CHARGES

Frostburg resident Robert Brian Winner was arrested at a residence in Midlothian yesterday morning, after allegedly stealing a car, and driving the wrong way on Interstate 68 westbound. Winner had also allegedly called in a false report of a woman falling into the Potomac River in the area of Luke, which brought out units from both Allegany and Garrett Counties, the Maryland State Police, and the Allegany County Special Operations Water Team. Authorities say he falsely reported the incident, due to being under the influence of drugs. After being charged, he was taken to UPMC-Western Maryland for an evaluation.
