Original release (November 3 12:20 p.m.):

At 4:07 p.m. Saturday, Baltimore County Police responded to the 16900 block of York Rd, 21111, in Precinct 7/Cockeysville, for a report of multiple thefts from automobiles. Officers discovered that someone had broken into at least three vehicles.

As the result of an investigation by the Cockeysville precinct, officers identified a 16-year-old boy as the suspect responsible for the thefts from auto. When the boy was located and interviewed at his home in the Monkton area, officers learned that he had plans to go to Baltimore County Public Schools' George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology in Towson with two explosive devices and a gun, and that he wanted to kill people. The boy is a tenth grade student at the Carver Center.

Officers responded to the suspect's Monkton home, where he showed them a handgun and devices believed to be explosive. The Baltimore County Police Hazardous Devices Team responded to the home and rendered safe three explosive devices. These were crude, homemade devices made of readily available components. They also found tools and components that could be used to make additional devices.

The boy was sent for an emergency evaluation and currently is held at the Charles H. Hickey  Jr. School. He has been charged as a juvenile with several counts including possession of a destructive device, theft and a handgun violation.

""The first responding officer in this case did an exceptional job of police work, and thanks to his diligence we intervened in what could have been an extremely serious situation," said Police Chief Jim Johnson.

There is no indication at this time that any co-conspirators were involved in this incident.

BCoPD continues to work with Baltimore County Public Schools on the ongoing investigation.

Automated traffic enforcement (speed cameras) will begin September 8 at the Garrison Forest School in Owings Mills.

The school, located in the 300 block of Garrison Forest Road in Owings Mills, is a posted 30 mph zone.

The cameras will become operational next Monday, September 8. For 30 days after the cameras are activated, motorists exceeding the speed limit by at least 12 mph will receive warnings rather than citations.

In compliance with state law, Baltimore County's speed cameras operate Monday through Friday between the hours of 6 a.m. and 8 p.m., including during the summer months and on  weekdays when school is not in session.

Additional details about the speed camera program, including the warning and citation process, are available on our web site.

Schools re-open January 2, 2014 and Baltimore County police will be on the lookout over the next few weeks for drivers who pass school buses that are stopped to pick up or discharge students. Drivers put County children at risk for serious injury or death when passing a stopped school bus.

Maryland law states that vehicles must come to a complete stop on both sides of the street if there is no physical divider or barrier. Drivers may not pass the bus until all lights have ceased flashing.

  • Drivers passing school buses while the lights are flashing will be fined $570 and issued a 3-point penalty on their record.
  • Drivers who stop but then proceed while the lights are flashing will be fined $570 and a 2-point penalty will be charged.
  • If an accident occurs after the driver has stopped then proceeds to pass the bus, he or she will be fined $610 and will be charged 3-points.

Police will be patrolling throughout the County and will ticket drivers who do not obey. When a driver is pulled over, officers will check to see if the person has a valid operator’s license. The vehicle’s registration will be checked as well to see if there are any outstanding tickets. If a driver has a revoked or suspended license, he or she will be taken into custody.

Children don’t always pay attention when crossing the street. Be a responsible driver and stop when a school bus is loading and unloading students.
