FORMER STATE EMPLOYEE CHARGED WITH 9/11 BOMB SCARE

Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today that Clarice Contonia Snowden, also known as Clarice Young, age 34, and whose last known Maryland residence was 413 K. Lake Vista Circle, Cockeysville, was indicted by the Baltimore City Grand Jury on 19 charges including Making a False Statement as to a Bomb on September 11, 2001, Felony Theft from the State of Maryland, Forgery, Identity Fraud, and Conspiracy with her husband, Elton Snowden, Jr., to commit Identity Fraud.

After indictment, the Court issued a warrant for Clarice Snowden’s arrest. She was arrested in York, Pennsylvania on September 13, 2002, due to the efforts of the Maryland State Police and York police.

The pending cases will be prosecuted by the Criminal Investigations Division of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office. While an indictment is merely an accusation of wrongdoing and every individual is presumed innocent unless the State proves the charges beyond a reasonable doubt, Making a False Statement of a Bomb is punishable by a maximum sentence of 10 years, a fine of $10,000, or both; Felony Theft carries a maximum sentence of 15 years, a fine of $1,000, or both. The other charges carry additional penalties.
