BCoPD reminds those hitting the road this Labor Day weekend that drinking while driving and distracted driving are dangerous and against the law.

Baltimore County police officers will be assigned to “saturation” details throughout the county Friday, August 29 through Monday September 1. A saturation detail consists of officers who patrol areas that throughout the year had a high concentration of DWI (Driving While Impaired), and DUI (Driving Under the Influence) offenses.

Anyone driving with a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) level of .08 or higher is considered legally drunk and will be arrested.

Remember too, that a driver may have a BAC level lower than .08 and yet be incapable of driving. Driving while “buzzed” is dangerous too because the driver’s reaction time is impaired. Driving “buzzed” is considered a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) offense. This is punishable by a fine or possible arrest.

Officers also will be on the lookout for anyone texting or using a handheld cellphone while driving.

Think before you get behind the wheel. Texting and drunk driving is a lethal cocktail.

If you know you will be drinking alcohol, arrange for a designated driver. You’ll save your life and the lives of others.

UPDATE (August 26):

Baltimore County Police have charged three suspects in connection with the August 19 shooting in Windsor Mill.

  • Randell Ga-Juan Michael Joseph (18) of the 4800 block of Laurel Avenue 21215
  • Frank James Blackwell (21) of the 500 block of Decker Avenue 21205
  • Coron Demon Johnson Jr (20) of the 900 block of Pennsylvania Avenue 21201

All three men have been charged with attempted first degree murder and related charges. They are being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

At 1:45 a.m. August 19, Baltimore County Police responded to the area of Elesmere Drive and Tudsbury Road 21244 for a report of shots fired. The victim was located in the area suffering from at least one gunshot wound.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that the victim and another person were walking along Elesmere Drive near Tudsbury Road when they were confronted by the suspects. The suspects displayed a gun and robbed the victims of their cell phones. As the victim and the person he was with ran from the suspects, one of the suspects shot the victim at least once.

The victim was transported to an area hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Violent Crimes Unit.

Original release (August 19):

BCoPD's Violent Crimes Unit is investigating a shooting that occurred early this morning in Precinct 2/Woodlawn.

Two men -- brothers -- were walking along Elesmere Drive near Tudsbury Road, 21244, at about 1:45 a.m. when they were confronted by four or five male suspects. The suspects displayed a gun and robbed the victims of their cell phones. As two brothers ran from the suspects, one of the victims --  33-year-old man from the 21244 zip code -- was struck by gunfire. He is expected to survive his injuries.

The investigation is ongoing.

Baltimore County Police are investigating an armed robbery that occurred on November 22 at 4:04 p.m. at Towson Town Center.

Preliminary investigation shows that the victim was in the men's bathroom, near the food court, when two male suspects displayed a knife and demanded his money and cell phone. The victim complied, and then chased the suspects through the food court and into the third floor of the mall.

The victim caught up with one of the suspects and pinned him against the wall outside the Call It Spring store. A plainclothes security guard responded to assist the victim, and the second suspect returned to assist the first suspect. A physical struggle followed, and one of the suspects displayed a handgun. Both suspects fled, using an exit near the Littman jewelry store.

The victim was not injured.

The suspects are black males, 18 to 20 years old, with medium builds. One was wearing a black baseball cap, backwards; and a black Polo jacket with Polo horse insignia. The other was wearing a black leather jacket, dark jeans and dark hoodie.

Anyone with information should call police at 410-307-2020.
