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.

BCoPD today released the name of a Cleveland Browns fan who posted an online video in which he appears to urinate on Art Modell's grave site.

Paul S. Serbu, 61, of the unit block of Meadowcrest Drive, Franklin, OH, 45005, was charged on a criminal summons ordering him to appear in court. He was charged with one count of disorderly conduct in a cemetery, a misdemeanor.

Original release, dated July 29, 2014:

Today Baltimore County State's Attorney Scott Shellenberger issued the following statement regarding a Cleveland Browns fan who appears to have urinated on Art Modell's grave site.

"The Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office has authorized charges in the case involving the Cleveland Brown’s fan and Mr. Art Modell’s grave site.

"In Maryland, Criminal Law Article 10-404(c) states: 'A person may not engage in indecent or disorderly conduct in a cemetery.' This crime is a misdemeanor that carries a maximum sentence of two years in jail and a fine of $500.

"Pursuant to Baltimore County Police Department policy, suspects are not identified until charges have been filed and served."

"I want to commend the Baltimore County Police Department for doing outstanding work in identifying the suspect involved in this case."

"Everyone who has buried a loved one has the right to believe that their final resting place will be treated with respect. Bringing charges against this individual should act as a deterrent to others and assure the rest of us that no matter who you are, indecencies will not be committed against your final resting place."

The suspect in this case will be served with a criminal summons to appear in court, a process that will take several days because he lives out of state.

 

The annual meeting of the Baltimore County Local Emergency Planning Committee is scheduled for Thursday, September 18 in Lutherville.
