    With an assist from Baltimore County Police, detectives were able to catch two bad, guys, red handed, stealing catalytic converters. We work to hard to have these bad guys stealing parts from our cars. 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.

Baltimore County Police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects in an armed robbery that occurred June 16 in the 10300 block of Reisterstown Road 21117.

The investigation into this incident has indicated that the victim and her boyfriend had been at a business in the Garrison Forrest Shopping Center and were returning to their car. As the victim was getting into the car, the first suspect approached and began speaking with her boyfriend about the location of an African Baptist Church. He offered her boyfriend $100 to drive him to the church and showed him what appeared to be a large sum of currency. A second suspect then approached and offered to help the first suspect.

The victim, her boyfriend, and the suspects got into the car and drove to a nearby Taco Bell where the second suspect stated he had to go talk to his boss. The second suspect exited the vehicle and went towards the building. While they were waiting for the second suspect to return, the first suspect asked the victim if her jewelry was real. When the second suspect returned to the vehicle, he grabbed the victim and demanded her jewelry. She gave her jewelry to the first suspect before both suspects left the location on foot.

The victim’s boyfriend told police that he saw the first suspect hand the second suspect a handgun during the robbery.

This incident is being investigated by the Precinct 3 Investigate Services Team. Detectives have obtained surveillance pictures of two subjects that they would like to talk to in reference to this incident.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call police at 410-307-2020.

Baltimore County first responders have received a financial boost from Baltimore Gas and Electric Company through a grant given to the Baltimore County Police Foundation.

The BGE Grant of $10,000, available through the BGE 2013 Emergency Responder Safety Grant Program, provides a broadband satellite system for the Baltimore County Police Department’s Mobile Unified Command Vehicle – a mobile command post for the County’s emergency operation’s team.

The broadband satellite system makes it possible for the Baltimore County Police Department’s Mobile Unified Command Vehicle to keep in touch with officers and other responders during natural and manmade disasters. History has shown that land-based systems can fail during emergencies when communication between agencies and the public is vital. It is not uncommon for cell and radio towers to go down when hit by a storm. When an emergency strikes, mobile and land-based phone communication networks can be overwhelmed and prove useless.

No Land Lines Needed

The new dedicated bandwidth system satellite does not depend upon terrestrial communications systems to keep communications flowing. Housed within the vehicle, the system provides resiliency and redundancy, ensuring that first responders can communicate during emergencies.

Uninterrupted communication is vital during emergencies. This satellite system provides safety for those who work and live in the County.

Ready To Go

The system was installed in the Baltimore County Police Department’s Command Vehicle in May and is fully functional.

The $17,500 cost of the system is shared by BGE, $10,000, and Baltimore County, $7,500.
