Photo of Dorothy Grubbs, missing from the North Point area.The boyfriend of a North Point woman reported missing Saturday was arrested on Merritt Boulevard this morning on an open warrant for a weapons violation. The woman, Dorothy Iris Grubb, 60, of the 1700 block of Manor Road, 21222, remains missing.

Clyde Campbell, 53, also of the Manor Road address, is in police custody and has not yet appeared before a court commissioner on the weapons violation, which is unrelated to the missing persons case. Police want to talk to Campbell to see if he has information that may help them find Dorothy Grubb.

Campbell's 14-year-old son was with him at the time of the arrest.

Campbell was driving a white Ford F-150 pickup truck when he was arrested.

Grubb's adult daughter called police Saturday at 6:30 p.m. to report that she had not seen her mother since Thursday evening and was concerned for her welfare because of a history of domestic violence with Campbell. The daughter said she had not seen Campbell, either.

Police began a missing persons investigation and on Sunday publicized the case, asking for the public's help in locating Grubb. Police have searched the Manor Road home, looking for information that might help them find Dorothy Grubb. The investigation is active and ongoing. Police consider Grubb a "critical" missing person because of concerns about her safety.

Grubb is a white female, 5'5" tall, 120 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing blue jeans and a T-shirt of unknown color. She has no known medical problems.

Anyone with information about this case should call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020.

Baltimore County Police are looking for information about the recent theft of the historic wrought iron gates at the entrance of Battle Acre Park in the 3100 block of North Point Road, Precinct 12/North Point.

Police responded at about noon today to the park for a report of a theft. The project manager for restoration of the park told police that the two gates for the park entrance were inside the property on June 25 - the last time he was at the park. A contractor discovered the gates missing on June 30.

The gates are worth $2000 each and are 100 years old. The thieves only took the smaller pedestrian gates and not the larger gates.

Neighbors interviewed by police said they did not see anyone taking the gates.

Officers have provided local scrap metal firms with a photo of the gates and asked them to notify police if the gates are found.

Battle Acre park is part of the field on which the Battle of Northpoint was fought in 1814. This was the day before the Battle of Baltimore during which the Star Spangled Banner was written. The land was deeded to the State of Maryland in 1839. The fences and gates were added in 1914.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact police at 410-307-2020.
