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.
