BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- From a small kitchen near downtown Baltimore, workers prepare chicken sandwiches, chicken fingers and waffle fries for hungry customers of one of the city’s newest dining establishments.
That’s because, unlike most restaurants, Fuku doesn’t have a traditional brick-and-mortar presence. Instead, it’s one of a growing number of ghost kitchens to spring up in recent years.

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Mere hours before former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh is set to be sentenced on tax evasion and conspiracy charges stemming from the scandal surrounding the sale of her self-published “Healthy Holly” books, the former mayor’s defense team has released an emotional video in which Pugh apologizes for her actions.
In the nearly 13-minute video that an attorney representing the former mayor shared with WJZ, a remorseful Pugh apologizes to “the citizens, to young people, to partners, my friends, everyone I’ve offended (and) everyone I’ve hurt.”

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — The latest session of the Maryland General Assembly kicked off last week with a number of changes due to COVID-19.
While the virus and recovery efforts are front of mind for lawmakers, they will also be tasked with voting on Gov. Larry Hogan’s Fiscal Year 2022 budget and reviewing hundreds of other bills on topics ranging from policing reforms following multiple high-profile deaths of Black people by police officers in 2020 to decriminalizing marijuana and changing the state song.
Here are some of the bills we’re watching this session in Annapolis.

(ABC 6 News) -- A deadly crash at the intersection of Highways 18 and 218 in Floyd is bringing renewed attention to upcoming safety improvements in the area, but those upgrades are still years away from becoming a reality.
Troy Reams, 40, of Greene, was killed Wednesday when he rear-ended a semi truck around 5:30 a.m. The crash remains under investigation, but the Iowa State Patrol said distracted driving may have played a role.

(ABC 6 News) -- Nearly 170 dogs were seized from the White Fire Kennel near Manly Monday, nearly a year after law enforcement first became aware of possible mistreatment.
The Worth County Sheriff's Office and the ASPCA spent much of Monday removing the dogs -- all Samoyeds -- from dirty, overcrowded kennels.
Photos sent to ABC 6 News by the ASPCA show nearly a dozen dogs in two small kennels, their fur matted and dirty.
