Md. Economic Official Accused of Rifling Through Neighbor's Lingerie Drawer

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The head of Anne Arundel County’s Economic Development Corp. has been placed on unpaid leave after he was accused of entering a neighbor’s home and going through her underwear drawer.

Annapolis police say the neighbor’s motion-activated surveillance cameras captured 70-year-old Robert Hannon rifling through the woman’s lingerie drawer Thursday. Hannon is charged with several counts of burglary and illegal entry.

County Executive Steve Schuh said in a statement Tuesday that Hannon is on leave “until further notice.” Mark Hartzell, the county’s chief administrative officer, will serve as acting CEO of economic development.

A police report says neither the neighbor nor the landlord gave Hannon permission to enter the apartment. Investigators did not find any signs of forced entry.

Hannon did not return calls from the Capital newspaper.
