HANOVER, Md. — Police in Anne Arundel County are identifying the man whose body was recovered from a pond area near Arundel Mills mall.
Police have identified the man as 26-year-old Tavon Talley of Baltimore. Police have said Talley fled from mall security officers on Monday night, jumped into a three-acre stormwater runoff pond and began to swim.

The body was recovered about 11:15 p.m. Monday from near the middle of the pond.
