    Nearly three months ago, 16-year-old Elise Fellner of Forest Hill was trying out for volleyball at a school in Kingsville when she collapsed from sudden cardiac arrest. Her coach and the athletic director immediately began CPR; BCoFD EMS crews followed up with defibrillation using an automatic external defibrillator. Elise has recovered fully.

    She and other survivors of sudden cardiac arrest will join Baltimore County Fire and EMS personnel and elected officials tomorrow, Thursday, October 23, 11:30 a.m., at the Parkville Fire Station. Each year, the Fire Department welcomes survivors of sudden cardiac arrest and the people who helped save them in an effort to raise awareness about the importance of CPR and defibrillation.

    The Parkville station is located at 2325 Putty Hill Ave., 21234. County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Fire Chief John Hohman are scheduled to attend. The event will include a demonstration of CPR by EMS personnel.

Baltimore County Police Chief James Johnson today provided some Precinct 6/Towson crime data for the third quarter of 2013, the most recent period for which data has been vetted under the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting System. 

The information -- prepared by BCoPD's Crime Analysis Unit -- shows data for the entire, 16-square-mile precinct, which extends from the Baltimore City line north to I-695, east to Perring Parkway and west to Falls Road. 

This data includes the number of cases of robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and theft  from January through September 2013 (we have also included the data for these crime categories for the first six-month period of 2013). BCoPD has compared this data to the previous five-year average for the same time periods, a comparison that allows a more accurate long-term view of statistical information. 

Though the first nine months of 2013, there were seven more robberies throughout the entire precinct than the previous five-year average for the same time period. 

Last summer, Chief Johnson discussed efforts to enhance the law enforcement presence in the Towson precinct -- unique because of its growing student population, large numbers of shopping districts, hospitals and parking lots. Those efforts continue as the precinct employs a variety of crime-fighting strategies including targeted deployments of officers, including specialized units; and technological resources including tag readers and mall cameras. Johnson said he anticipates additional enhancements in the coming year.

"Towson is the most densely populated precinct in the county," Johnson said,"and different from our other precincts because of its role as the County Seat and as a hub of education, commerce and entertainment. Thousands of people work in Towson, go to school here, shop here. Working with our community and business partners, we will continue to identify and address crime trends in this precinct."

Chief Johnson also noted that case clearances in the Towson precinct are among the highest in the county.

Towson Precinct Captain Richard Howard said, "My officers have worked extremely hard over the past few months clearing many of the cases that have made headlines in recent months. We will continue to work in partnership with our communities and to educate people about how to prevent crimes such as theft and burglary."

Photo of Courtney Calbert, arrested for stealing hard drive containing County employees' personal information.The former Baltimore County contract employee suspected of stealing a hard drive containing employees' personal information was extradited to Maryland on November 11. He is Courtney Calbert, 34, of the 8200 block of North Boundary Road, 21222.

He was arrested in Florida in October on an open warrant, and waived extradition.

Investigation Continues

The defendant was indicted by the Baltimore County State's Attorney's Office last spring and charged with 10 counts of theft and two related offenses. These charges stem from a case dating back to July 2012 and are unrelated to his possession of Baltimore County employees' personal information. Baltimore County detectives discovered the theft of the County hard drive while investigating the 2012 case. The investigation of this case continues. Additional charges may be pending.

No Link to ID Theft Cases

At this time, detectives have not linked Courtney Calbert to any identity theft cases involving Baltimore County employees. There is no information at this time that Calbert used the information contained on the County hard drive.

He is currently being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center.
