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.

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.
