Baltimore County Police have charged a Dundalk man in connection with the theft of two historic gates from Battle Acre Park in Dundalk in June.

George Elias Sotirakis (34) of the 2500 block of Woodwell Road 21222 is charged with theft from $10,000 to under $100,000. He has been released on $50,000 bail.

A contractor that was working on renovations at the park noticed that two 100-year-old gates were missing on June 30. The gates were last seen on June 25.

The gates had an estimated replacement value of $4000 and an estimated actual value of $10,000 due to their historic nature.

Detectives identified George Elias Sotirakis as a suspect through surveillance video, information from local scrap yards, and other investigative methods. Detectives believe that the gates have already been scrapped.

This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Department Pawn, Precious Metals and Scrap Metal Team.

Battle Acre Park is part of the field on which the Battle of North Point was fought in 1814.

At 11:43 a.m., Baltimore County Fire and Police Units responded to the Sparrows Point Facility for an injured subject.

A male had been changing a tire on a trailer when the tire blew and hit him in the head. He was transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center by a Maryland State Police medivac helicopter with life threatening injuries.

No other injuries were reported.

UPDATE (July 10):

At 3:02 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, Baltimore County Police responded to a home in the 7200 block of Gough St 21224. The anonymous caller into 911 stated that an argument could be heard in the home. The caller further stated that a male voice from inside in the home stated that he “has a gun” and “was going to kill everybody”.

Officers surrounded the home and repeatedly attempted to contact people inside unsuccessfully. A records check indicated that a male subject living in the home had a gun listed to him.

The Baltimore County Police Tactical Unit responded to the scene and was able to contact an adult male subject inside the home and later take him into custody without incident. The male was transported to an area hospital for an evaluation. An adult female that had also been in the home was not injured.

Original release (July 9):
