Original Release (July 22, 2020 3:03 p.m.):

Baltimore County Police need the public's help finding Bri Bri, a white Bichon Frise, who was stolen at the Ravenwood Shopping Center in Towson Sunday night.

Bri Bri, a white Bichon Frise stolen during a GTABri Bri (pronounced bree-bree) is 15-years-old and has a cyst on her right front leg. She was riding in her mom's blue Nissan Altima when they stopped at Island Quizine in the 8000 block of Loch Raven Boulevard around 9:20 p.m. to pick up a take-out order. Bri Bri's mom left the car running to keep her cool while she stepped inside to pay for the order. In that moment, a black male suspect slipped into the running Nissan and drove away with Bri Bri on the back seat.

The Nissan has since been recovered in Baltimore City, but there has been no sign of Bri Bri. Anyone who may have any information on her whereabouts is asked to contact officers at the Towson Precinct by calling 410-887-2361. This case is being investigated by Officer Parnell #6346. 

Police searched areas of the Cockeysville Precinct for discarded evidence today following two armed robberies last night.

Officers arrested two suspects last night, an adult man and a teenage boy, after the two committed two armed street robberies, then stole one of the victim's vehicles.

The first call was received at 10:26 p.m. when the suspects approached a man walking in the area of Rutledge Road and Castlehill Court, 21030 and demanded cash. One of the suspects brandished a handgun. They fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police responded to the second call around 11:13 p.m. in the 300 block of Limestone Valley Drive, 21030 when two suspects matching the description from the previous call approached a woman outside of an apartment complex, brandished a gun and demanded cash. This time they stole cash and car keys, then located her vehicle, a white convertible Ford Mustang, and fled the scene. The woman quickly reported the car stolen and responding officers located the Mustang traveling southbound on York Road just north of Padonia Road. Officers followed the vehicle while they requested additional units, air support and K9 to respond to assist with a stop of the vehicle, but the Mustang turned onto Dulaney View Court where the two suspects stopped and fled on foot.

The adult male suspect was immediately apprehended by officers. A quick investigation led to the identification of the juvenile suspect, who was also located and arrested. Both suspects presently remain in custody, their identities being withheld pending formal charging.

A man suffered injuries after crashing a stolen vehicle early this morning on Scotts Level Road in Pikesville.

Officers were initially dispatched to the 100 block of Purvis Place at 2:14 a.m. for a call of a Jeep Cherokee being stolen. An officer responding to the area located the stolen Jeep and attempted to initiate a traffic stop on Scotts Level Road. The driver of the Jeep failed to stop and lost control of the vehicle just before Old Court Road and struck a fence and a parked car before overturning and ejecting the driver.

The driver, 18, was transported to an area hospital where he remains in critical condition.

The Baltimore County Police Crash Investigation Team responded to the scene and is conducting the crash reconstruction.
