Baltimore County Police and Fire News

Official News Blog of Baltimore County police, fire, homeland security and emergency management. Call 911 to report crimes in progress and emergencies.

At 11:39 a.m., Baltimore County Police responded to the campus of the Community College of Baltimore County at Essex for a report of a subject with a gun. The caller into 911 stated that someone had pointed a gun at him and was going to shoot him.

Police immediately called specialized resources to the scene and began to prepare for an encounter with an armed person.

When officers located the complainant and interviewed him, they found that there was no gunman and no gun.

The complainant on the call has been taken to an area hospital for an evaluation.

Cold weather is here, no doubt about that. Just dressing to go outside in the morning to warm the car seems to take forever. It would be so easy just to start up the car, run back into that warm, cozy house and have a little more coffee. Not a good idea. In the amount of time it takes to walk into your home someone can steal your vehicle.

Car thieves wait and watch for people to walk away and then strike. They are not only in your neighborhood, but at convenience stores waiting for you to run in to get a quick cup of coffee. You may think that locking your keys in the car will dissuade these criminals but it doesn't. They can pick a lock often times faster than you can open it with your key. Baltimore County Police Sergeant Robert Jagoe, a member of the Regional Auto Theft Team (RATT), says in one study more than 25 percent of the vehicles stolen in the area were due to keys left in the ignition.

There are many reasons not to leave your car unattended; walking in the cold is not fun, making car payments on a car that is no longer available to you, insurance that probably will not pay for your mistake, and lastly you could get a ticket if a Baltimore County Police Officer sees that you have stepped away from your vehicle.

So if you don't want to be left out in the cold, ice, freezing rain or snow, don't leave the car unattended.
