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.

UPDATE (October 2):

The man who was injured yesterday in a construction accident in Sparks has died.

Michael Ray Mathews (64) of Freeland was operating a mini-steamroller, flattening out a dirt pile when part of the dirt pile collapsed. This caused the mini-steamroller to roll over, trapping Mathews. Another worker at the site used a bobcat to lift the mini-steamroller up so that Mathews could be removed from under it. Mathews was taken to St. Joseph’s Medical Center where he later died.

An investigator with Maryland Occupational Safety and Health responded to the scene and began an investigation.

Original release (October 1):

At 2:08 p.m. this afternoon, Baltimore County Fire and Police personnel responded to the 600 Block of Belfast Rd 21152 for a report of an entrapment.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that an adult male was operating a mini-steamroller, flattening a pile of dirt. Part of the dirt pile collapsed causing the mini-steamroller to roll over. The operator became trapped under the mini-steamroller but was later extricated.

The operator was taken to an area hospital where his current condition is unknown.

Police are still on the scene. Maryland Occupational Safety and Health was notified.

At 12:39 p.m. this afternoon, police received information that there may be a subject with a weapon in the area of Loch Raven High School. The school went on alert status while police searched the area around the school.

Police did not find anything during their search. They will remain in the area while Loch Raven High School and nearby Lutheran High School dismisses students.

An alert status at a school is less serious than a lock down. When a school is on alert status, activity inside the school continues as normal. However; no one is permitted to enter or exit the building.

At 1:58 p.m. Saturday afternoon, Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to Old York Road and Lentz Road in Parkton for a serious automobile accident.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that a Harley Davidson motorcycle was traveling east-bound on Old York Road approaching Lentz Road. It struck the rear of a Ford Escort that had stopped on east-bound Old York Road to make a left turn. The motorcycle then traveled onto west-bound Old York Road and was struck by a Honda CRV.

The operator of the motorcycle was declared deceased at the scene. He has been identified as 51-year-old Joseph Zutell, Jr. of Seven Valleys Pennsylvania.

There were no other injuries reported.

This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Department Crash Team.
