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 have charged Officer Timothy Kennedy, a 27-year veteran of the agency, with one count of failing to secure a firearm to prevent access by a minor.

On October 11, Officer Kennedy's 11-year-old son was able to obtain his father's service weapon after he set it down on an armoire in his bedroom when he arrived home from work. His son discharged the weapon, and the bullet struck the door. There were no injuries from this incident. Officer Kennedy's wife reported the incident to the department the following day and a criminal investigation was started.

The case was referred to the State's Attorney's Office for review. Detectives applied for a criminal summons on October 25.

Chief Emphasizes Gun Safety Priority

"This Department has spent much time and effort advocating for gun owners to handle their weapons safely and responsibly, especially when it comes to keeping guns out of the hands of children," said Police Chief James Johnson. "We do not hesitate to enforce gun safety laws, and, as this unfortunate case shows, that includes cases involving our own officers."

Police Powers Suspended

Officer Kennedy's police powers were suspended when the department was notified of this incident. He will remain suspended pending the results of the criminal case. Per policy, the internal investigation will be completed at the conclusion of the criminal process.

Baltimore County detectives continue to investigate the double shooting that occurred on October 2 at 4:40 p.m. in the 2100 block of Southorn Road, 21220. The victims have been identified as Brandon James Jewell, 27 years old, and Charley William Jewell, 66 years old, both of the 2100 block of Southorn Road, 21220.

Both victims are expected to survive their injuries.
