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.

(October 11, 2013, updated 2:10 p.m.) - This morning, detectives were conducting a criminal investigation in the area of Pulaski Highway and Route 43. They observed an armed robbery suspect leaving the Colony motel, in the 11100 block of Pulaski Highway, in a 1996 Toyota Camry. Detectives waited until the suspect stopped at a traffic light and approached the vehicle on foot to take him into custody. 

The detectives saw the suspect reach for a handgun, which has been recovered by police. Fearing for their safety, the two detectives discharged their firearms.

The suspect pulled away, striking two police vehicles. He was able to drive to the intersection of Pulaski Highway and Middle River Road, where he was involved in a crash. The suspect's vehicle struck a civilian's vehicle, and the suspect bailed out of his car. No one else was in the suspect's Camry, and there were no injuries to occupants of the civilian vehicle.

The suspect was taken into custody and found to have suffered a non life-threatening gunshot wound. The suspect was taken to a local hospital for treatment and has been released. He is now in police custody.

Around noon today, tactical officers and detectives served a search warrant on a room at the Colony motel in connection with this ongoing investigation. One person inside the motel room was taken into custody and is being interviewed by police.

No charges have been filed at this time, and no additional information can be released about the suspect until charges are filed. This remains an active, ongoing investigation, and as a result BCoPD cannot release details about suspected criminal activity involving this suspect.

The police-involved shooting remains under investigation. Detectives continue to gather physical evidence and conduct interviews. The two detectives involved in the shooting are a 29-year veteran and a 25-year veteran of BCoPD, both assigned to the Criminal Investigation Division. They have been placed on administrative leave, a standard procedure for officer-involved shootings.
