Original release (November 30, 2015 3:00 p.m.):

The Baltimore County Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect in the robbery of a 7-Eleven on Belair Road. Just before 11:30 p.m. on November 5, Baltimore County Police responded to the 7-Eleven store in the 7600 block of Belair Road 21236 for a robbery.
The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that a male suspect and female suspect entered the store, walked up to the soda fountain machine, and got sodas. The female then walked up to the counter to pay for her soda. As the cashier opened the register, the male walked around the counter, told the cashier to keep the register open, and took money from the register. Both suspects then fled the scene.
A picture of the female suspect was captured on the store’s video surveillance system. She is described as an African American female in her late 20s, 5’0” to 5’2”, weighing 170 to 180 pounds, and has a light complexion. She was wearing all black clothing.
The male suspect is believed to be involved in a recent robbery of a Baskin Robbins store in Parkville (click here for news release) and possibly other businesses as well.
This incident is under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Robbery Unit.
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.

Original release (November 30, 2015  1:36 p.m.):

A Thursday morning motorcycle crash on Bethlehem Boulevard has left a man deceased.
At 2:21 a.m. on November 26, Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to Bethlehem Boulevard and Peninsula Expressway. When officers arrived on the scene, they located a seriously injured adult male.
The preliminary investigation into the crash has indicated that a 2014 Harley Davidson motorcycle was traveling east-bound on Bethlehem Boulevard approaching Shipyard Road. The motorcycle went off of the roadway, ejecting the operator, and eventually came to rest back on the roadway.
The motorcycle’s operator, 39-year-old David James Mundy of the 2800 block of 9th Street 21219, was transported to the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center where he was later declared deceased.
This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Crash Team.
