The December Officer of the Month for the Franklin Precinct is awarded to Officer D. Love #5756.

Officer Love had a few notable cases in December, including the bank robbery of the PNC Bank in Towson that was included in a release on the County Blog, "Suspect Arrested Following Bank Robbery."  Officer Love played a key role in locating the suspect vehicle that brought this bank robber to justice.

Another notable case that Officer Love worked was a Grand Theft Scheme at Northwest Fine Wine & Spirits on Westminster Pike. Officer Love began an investigation into the theft of alcoholic beverages from the store when he was contacted by the owners who implicated a former employee as responsible for a series of thefts over a 3 year period. His thorough investigation led to the arrest of the suspect, Justin Patrick Principio (41) of the 6200 block of Chinquapin Parkway, 21239, and a confession. A search of the suspect's home yielded the recovery of nearly $2500 in alcoholic beverages still in the store's packaging. The total loss to the business is believed to be near $50,000.

Officer Love's supervisor describes him as a motivated officer who conducts thorough investigations with attention to the details necessary to ensure the successful clearance and prosecution of his cases. Congratulations on a job well done, Officer Love!
