Correction to article incorrectly naming wrong business in police investigation press release

On or about January 18, 2018, The Anne Arundel County Police Department released a press release on a police investigation into prostitution at a Glen Burnie Massage parlor named Glen Burnie Spa at 7954 Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard, Suite 2L, in Glen Burnie, Maryland.

A the time, the release stated the business was named Nurturing Hanz Therapeutic Massage due to an old sign that was still hanging at the business. The detective in charge of the case Detective Bernard Adkin issued a letter on October 28, 2019; in possession of the Southern Maryland Chronicle, stating that the old sign was hanging there and that Nurturing Hanz Therapeutic Massage was not the business listed originally. Nurturing Hanz Therapeutic Massage is not the subject of this investigation, nor its employees. The business had not operated there for some time however the old sign remained, as the source for the confusion.

A letter from the company’s attorney A. Zachary Tropf, Esq. of Friedman, Framme & Thrush, P.A informed the Chronicle on November 27, 2019, at 2:00 p.m. along with the letter from the Detective. The Chronicle verified this and immediately fixed the article in question and also issued this correction;” Glen Burnie massage parlor prostitution arrests

The Southern Maryland Chronicle never received an updated release from anyone concerning this nor received an email or call from the owner of the business until the email arrived from the attorney.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle takes facts seriously and if there is ever an erroneous error we will correct it immediately. We apologize to the owner and company along with our readers. If at any time there is a known error, please contact us [email protected]

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at [email protected]

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
