Today, Baltimore Country Police Officers are wearing a mourning band on their badges in memory of Corporal Sam Snyder.

In August 1983, 71-year-old Corporal Sam Snyder, a 30-year veteran of the Baltimore County Police Department, responded to the Bel-Loc Diner in the 1700 block of East Joppa Road 21234 to assist other officers with a call for service. While he was at the scene, he was shot by a subject. He died 10 days later as a result of his injuries.

Corporal Sam Synder’s name, along with other fallen heroes, is inscribed on a monument at Patriot Plaza in Towson.

At 6:33 a.m. this morning, Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to the 2000 Block of Old Valley Road 21153 for a report of a hit and run crash that involved two bicyclists and a vehicle. The vehicle had fled the scene.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that a Toyota Corolla was traveling east-bound in the 2000 block of Old Valley Road. There were two people riding bikes traveling west-bound. The car hit the bicyclists head-on and fled the scene.

The bicyclists have been identified as:

  • Richard Frychel (35) of the 400blk Dumbarton Rd 21212. He was transported to Sinai Hospital.
  • Anthony Van Lierop (40) of the 600blk Overbrook Rd 21212. He was transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

Both men have injuries that are believed to be non-life-threatening.

The suspect was located nearby and taken into custody. His name will be released after he is officially charged.

This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Crash Team.

On July 9, a detective with the Baltimore County Police Department Crimes Against Children Unit was conducting a check of the Internet for persons sharing child pornography. During this investigation, the detective identified a source that was sharing pornographic images of children. The source was identified again on July 25 as a source that was sharing pornographic images of children.

Further investigation indicated that this source was located in a home in the 2300 block of Turkey Point Road 21221. Detectives served a search and seizure warrant on that home and recovered several computer devices that contained images of child pornography.

The investigation has indicated that 46-year-old James Patrick Tinker II of the home in the 2300 block of Turkey Point Road 21221 was responsible for the images on the computer devices and that he knowingly and willfully possessed and distributed child pornography. James Patrick Tinker II was found to be a licensed social worker at Turning Point in Baltimore and Anne Arundel Counseling in Glen Burnie.

At this time, there is no evidence that James Patrick Tinker II has had any sexual contact with children.

James Patrick Tinker II has been charged with possession and distribution of child pornography. He is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $200,000 bail.
