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.

Baltimore County Police is asking for help identifying these suspects in connection with a residential burglary in Catonsville after they used stolen credit cards at various convenience stores.

The burglar(s) broke into the home in the 200 block of Hilton Avenue overnight, taking electronics, a wallet with cash and credit/bank cards, and keys to the above depicted red Ford Focus, which the suspect(s) also stole, all while the residents were sleeping.

The stolen cards were used at 7-Eleven stores on West Franklin Street, Sherwood Road, and York Road, at an Exxon Gas Station on Falls Road, and at Collins Mini Mart on Frederick Avenue following the burglary. The stolen red Ford Focus has since been recovered.

Anyone who is able to identify any of the suspects in the above images taken from store surveillance cameras is asked to contact police by calling 410-307-2020. The Baltimore County Police Burglary Unit is continuing to investigate these crimes.

A man who fled from Baltimore County and Baltimore City Police in a stolen vehicle is under arrest this afternoon.

Our Regional Auto Theft Taskforce (RATT Squad, which includes officers from both Baltimore County and Baltimore City as well as officers from other surrounding jurisdictions) attempted to stop a vehicle early this afternoon after patrol officers from the White Marsh Precinct notified them that they were following a vehicle with verified stolen license plate tags. Air support took over when the officers attempted to make a traffic stop on the vehicle but it began to flee erratically on Pulaski Highway into Baltimore City.

Air support kept RATT units from Baltimore County and Baltimore City updated on the location of the vehicle as it continued to drive recklessly through Baltimore City, where the driver struck two parked cars and fled the vehicle on foot. Baltimore City RATT units arrived on the scene, located and caught up to the fleeing suspect, and were able to stop and apprehend him. Detectives determined that the vehicle was reported stolen out of Baltimore City and the tags were also reported stolen from a different vehicle in Baltimore City.

The uncooperative suspect was transported back to Baltimore County for charging. He is not yet identified but is described as an adult male. Further information will be provided once he is positively identified.
