UPDATE (March 15, 2020 9:15 p.m.):

Investigators have identified the man killed in a single-vehicle crash on Falls Road early this morning as Millard Marvin Sanders Jr (53) of the 1500 block of Undercliff Avenue in Bronx, New York. Sanders was reported missing from his home on February 22 and reportedly had a medical condition that may have caused him to behave erratically. 

Original Release (March 15, 2020 4:40 p.m.):

Police are investigating after a stolen vehicle crashed on Falls Road this morning, killing the driver.

The preliminary investigation determined that the vehicle, a Honda Accord, was being driven north on Falls Road north of Padonia Road just before 7 a.m. when the driver lost control and left the roadway on the right shoulder. The Honda struck a utility pole and overturned, ejecting the driver from the vehicle. Investigators believe that speed may be a factor in this crash and do not believe the driver was wearing a safety belt.

The vehicle was reported stolen out of Baltimore City this morning. Investigators have not yet identified the driver killed in the crash. The Baltimore County Police Crash Investigation Team continues to work to identify the driver and further the investigation into the factors that contributed to this crash.

Anyone who may have information that could assist investigators should call 410-307-2020.

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.
