    With an assist from Baltimore County Police, detectives were able to catch two bad, guys, red handed, stealing catalytic converters. We work to hard to have these bad guys stealing parts from our cars. The attached picture, courtesy of our Metal Theft Unit, shows where the catalytic converter used to be and the picture of the removed catalytic converter. Give our friends in Baltimore County a Like and then another Like for our patrol officers and Metal Theft Unit who busted these two bad guys! 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.

Baltimore County Police detectives are investigating crimes committed against some of the most vulnerable members of our communities: the elderly.

Since early April, more than 20 elderly county residents have fallen victim to deception burglaries.

The suspects are very clever and good at pretending that they are someone that they are not. They will approach their elderly victims, and claim that they are from organizations such as Baltimore County, the Water Department, or BGE. They will tell the victim that they need to check water, water pipes, or need to do some type of inspection. In some cases, the suspects have worn bright yellow traffic vests and showed identification badges. While one suspect distracts the victim, the other suspect will enter the home and steal money, jewelry, and other valuable items.


Baltimore County Police offers the following tips to prevent deception burglaries:

  • Do not allow uninvited repair workers into your home, especially if they want to fix something that you have not noticed is a problem (such as a leaky roof)
  • Do not allow anyone to lead you anywhere in your home or on your property. This can leave other areas of the home unsecure so that a thief can access those areas.
  • If someone claims to be at your home for an inspection, ask for identification and contact their company prior to allowing them into your home
  • Keep doors locked when possible to prevent anyone from entering your home while you are outside the house
  • Call 911 immediately if someone attempts to enter your home or you suspect someone is attempting a deception burglary
  • Watch for people offering services in your community and make sure to write down a description of the individuals and their vehicle, including a tag number
  • Older residents and those living alone are often targeted – keep in contact with your neighbors to ensure that they are not victimized
  • Always research companies before hiring them to ensure that they are legitimate companies with a good reputation
  • Report any suspicious persons, vehicles, or activity to police immediately

Baltimore County Police Burglary Unit detectives are working very hard to solve these crimes, but they need the public’s help. If you have any information on any of these cases, please call police at 410-307-2020. Tips can also be submitted to iWatch online or by email to iwatch@baltimorecountymd.gov.

As with other crimes, you can make your neighborhood an uncomfortable place for criminals to be: report any suspicious activity.
