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.

Ten years after a vehicle was reported stolen in Baltimore City, Baltimore County Police pulled it from the murky waters of a pond in Stansbury Park.

Police received a tip that there may be a vehicle in the pond in Dundalk after it was seen on satellite images. The Baltimore County Police Dive Team responded to the park yesterday and discovered the vehicle, empty, immersed in the pond. After it was pulled from the pond a check of the vehicle identification number revealed that the vehicle, now covered in algae, was a gold 2007 Chevrolet Malibu reported stolen in Baltimore City after it was left running unattended in 2009. The vehicle has not been linked to any other crimes.

An eel was taken into custody after being found inside the vehicle, but he was released after questioning.

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.
