BALTIMORE, MD – On Sunday, June 30, the Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) Police arrested a Baltimore man during a traffic stop on I-95 in Baltimore City. The man, 34-year-old Orlando Rogers, was arrested for illegally possessing a gun and drugs and resisting arrest.

 

At approximately 2:28 a.m., an MDTA Police Officer stopped Mr. Orlando on southbound I-95 in Baltimore City for speeding. Mr. Orlando was driving a 2019 Toyota Camry.
