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.

The Baltimore County Police Department is currently seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the individuals responsible for a theft from the Zales store at Towson Town Center.

Sometime between 4:30 and 5:10 p.m. August 2, the suspects entered the Zales store. While the employee was helping customers, and no one was looking, the suspects took jewelry from unsecured displays. The suspects took over $49,000 in jewelry.

The first suspect is described as a black male, approximately 40 to 50 years old, 6'02", 190 pounds, short black hair, brown eyes, and a light black in color beard. He was wearing a white dress shirt, gray pants, and black shoes.

The second suspect is described as a black male, 45 to 50 years old, 5'08", 180 pounds, black short hair, brown eyes, and a black in color beard. He was wearing a white t-shirt, gray shorts, black hat, and black shoes.

This incident is being investigated by the Baltimore County Police Department Organized Retail Crimes Team. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 410-887-2190 or 410-307-2020, or Metro Crimes Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.

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.
