    With an assist from Baltimore County Police, detectives were able to catch two bad, guys, red handed, stealing catalytic converters.

The attached picture, courtesy of our Metal Theft Unit, shows where the catalytic converter used to be and the picture of the removed catalytic converter. Give our friends in Baltimore County a Like and then another Like for our patrol officers and Metal Theft Unit who busted these two bad guys! Northern District Catalytic Converter Theft Arrests Linthicum On October 29, 2014 at 1:10 p.m., two detectives from the Baltimore County Police Department were exiting Interstate 695 onto Hammonds Ferry Rd in Linthicum as they were on their way to conduct an interview in reference to an investigation that was unrelated to this incident. The detectives observed a maroon Dodge four door sedan, which was stopped in front of a Toyota Highlander on the Park and Ride lot, located at 824 Hammonds Ferry Rd. Their attention was drawn to the vehicle due to the recent thefts of catalytic converters from Toyota’s in the area. The detectives observed a subject, later identified as Elijah Russell Kelly, leaning against the passenger side of the Dodge and talking on the phone. As the detectives proceeded on Hammonds Ferry Rd and began to pass the vehicle, they observed another individual, later identified as Dennis Paul Moore Jr., on the ground under the Toyota. It appeared to the detectives that Moore was cutting something from underneath the vehicle. The detectives immediately turned around and noticed that Moore was in possession of a “sawzall” and holding the catalytic converter he had just cut from the Toyota SUV. They identified themselves, detained the suspects and called for assistance from Anne Arundel County Police Department. Officers arrived and charged the suspects with Theft and Malicious Destruction of Property. A catalytic converter is part of a vehicle exhaust system that contains precious metals. Both Anne Arundel County and Baltimore County are currently experiencing thefts of catalytic converters from vehicles, particularly in parking lots. Citizens are asked to be vigilant and call police when they observe suspicious activity. The keen observation and action of these detectives led to the successful arrest of the below listed suspects. Suspect 1: Dennis Paul Moore, 35– 3700 block Saint Victor Street, Baltimore, MD. He was charged with theft $1,000 to $10,000, malicious destruction of property and theft less than $1,000.00, theft less than $100.00 rogue and vagabond. Suspect 2: Elijah Russell Kelly, 34 – 100 block New Jersey Ave., Glen Burnie, MD. He was charged with theft $1,000 to $10,000, malicious destruction of property and rogue and vagabond.

Photo of new police cruisers - the Ford Interceptor.The Baltimore County Police Department (BCoPD) has begun converting its fleet of cruisers to a new model – the Ford Interceptor.

County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Police Chief James Johnson introduced the new vehicle this morning at a press event at Precinct 7/Cockeysville. The first 50 of the new cars – a $1.3 million investment in public safety – have been purchased and are ready for deployment next month.

The Interceptor – a version of the Taurus designed for law enforcement – will replace the existing Ford Crown Victoria, a model that has been discontinued. BCoPD has used the Crown Victoria since the 1990s. It will take about six years to replace the BCoPD inventory of about 450 Crown Victoria sedans.

All-Wheel Drive and Other Features

A BCoPD panel reviewed a variety of models and settled on the Ford Interceptor because of its features, including:

  • All-wheel drive. The first new Interceptors will be assigned to posts in the more rural precincts – Precinct 3/Franklin, Precinct 7/Cockeysville and Precinct 8/Parkville – where officers often deal with more severe winter weather.
  • A driver’s seat designed with a space to accommodate the officer’s gun and other tools.
  • A 20 percent improvement in fuel economy over the Crown Victoria.
  • Side curtain airbags.

Kamenetz Committed to Needs of Responders

Photo of County Executive Kevin Kamenetz during press conference.“We remain committed to giving our first responders the equipment they need,” said County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. “Our investment in the Police Department is paying dividends, making Baltimore County one of the safest communities in the nation.”

“As a police officer, one of the features I like best about the Interceptor is the way it handles. It’s maneuverable and feels almost like a sports car,” said Chief Johnson. “I think our officers are going to find it a functional and enjoyable car to drive.”

The exterior striping on the cruisers will not change.

The old Crown Victorias will be sold at auction as they are removed from the fleet.

Baltimore County Police have arrested and charged three men responsible for a series of commercial armed robberies. They have been charged with four robberies in Baltimore County at this time, but detectives believe they may be responsible for as many as 14 armed robberies throughout Baltimore County and Baltimore City.

  • Damon Williams, 30, of no fixed address, was charged with four counts of armed robbery. He is currently being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $350,000 bail.
  • Adrian Walden, 25, of the 4900 block of Ross Road, 21214, was charged with four counts of armed robbery. He is currently being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $350,000 bail.
  • Solomon Dunn, 37, of the 1700 block of Lamont Avenue, 21202, was charged with four counts of armed robbery and four counts of conspiracy to commit armed robbery. He is currently being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $250,000.

On November 13 at 9:48 p.m., two of the suspects approached an employee of the 7-Eleven in the 6500 block of Sherwood Road in Precinct 6/Towson. One of the defendants put a knife to her back and forced her to open the cash register. The suspects fled after taking money, cigarettes and hot dogs. Minutes later, officers located a white Mitsubishi Galant traveling on Loch Raven Boulevard, and stopped the vehicle. A similar vehicle had been seen at other recent commercial robberies in Baltimore County. All three suspects were placed under arrest after officers found knives, cigarettes, and money connected to the robbery inside the vehicle.

Additional Robberies

Detectives have also charged the three suspects with three additional robberies:

  • November 2: Dunkin Donuts, 8000 block of Liberty Road (Precinct 4/Pikesville)
  • November 5: Dollar Tree, 800 block of Taylor Avenue (Precinct 6/Towson)
  • November 9: Dollar Tree, 1100 block of Chesaco Avenue (Precinct 9/White Marsh)

Detectives believe that Solomon Dunn served as the driver of the getaway vehicle, and that Damon Williams and Adrian Walden committed the armed robberies.

The investigation remains open, and detectives are continuing to investigate the suspects' connection to other robberies.

Booking photos of the suspects are not being released due to the ongoing investigation.
