Baltimore County Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying three armed robbery suspects. On June 10, 2018 at 12:40 a.m., a female suspect came into the Super 8 Motel located in the unit-block of Stemmers Run Road, 21221, and asked the front desk clerk for a room key to a particular room inside the motel. The woman left the motel after the clerk refused to give her a key. The female suspect came back into the lobby of the motel, along with two additional suspects. The two male suspects were wearing face masks when all three approached the clerk. The female suspect once again asked for a room key. After the front desk clerk refused, one of the other suspects implied that he had a weapon and told the clerk to give the woman the room key. In fear of his life, the clerk complied and gave the female suspect the room key. Shortly afterwards, the suspects fled the area.

The first suspect is described as a black female, 25 to 35 years old, 5’6,” and 140 pounds. She was wearing a green polka dot bandana, a gray Pittsburgh Steelers T-shirt, black pants, and black Nike flip flops.

The second suspect is described as a black male, 18-25 years old, 5’9,” and 200 pounds. He was wearing a ski mask, a black jacket, and black pants.

The third suspect is described as a black male, 18-25 years old, 5’8,” and 160 pounds. He was wearing a ski mask, a black “hoody” sweatshirt, dark colored pants and shoes. This suspect implied that he had a weapon during the robbery.

A 61-year-old woman has died of injuries sustained in an early-morning, one-alarm fire in a Woodlawn motel.

The victim, Darline Nelson Grady, of no fixed address, was transported by EMS personnel to St. Agnes Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

An investigation by BCoPD fire investigators found the fire was caused by improperly discarded smoking materials.

BCoFD crews responded at 12:20 a.m. to the Days Inn motel in the 1600 block of Whitehead Ct., 21207. First arriving crews (Engine 13) found an odor of burning and located the fire in a room on the second floor. They found the victim in critical condition in that room.

Crews searched for additional victims and found none. The fire was under control by 12:42 a.m.
