Case Details

Crime scene photosJust before 4:00 a.m. on March 2, 1996, police were called to the 6300-block of York Road, 21212 for a shooting. Officers found Jody LeCornu, 23, inside her car suffering from a gunshot wound. The subsequent investigation determined that she was shot in the back while seated inside her car on the lot of the Drumcastle Shopping Center in the 6300-block of York Road, 21212. After being shot, LeCornu drove her car onto York Road and then onto the lot of the York Road Plaza. Witnesses gave information about a male suspect. The suspect followed LeCornu’s car into the lot of the Plaza and then removed an unknown item from inside Jody’s car. The man then drove away southbound on York Road in a white BMW. He was described as a black male with a stocky build and wearing a drab or green-colored army style coat.

Crashes on Saturday and again on Sunday closed businesses after the vehicles struck buildings on York Road.

On Saturday a vehicle crashed through the front doors of Gibby's Seafood & Gourmet Market in the 2300 block of York Road around 2 p.m. when the driver attempted to pull into a parking space but accelerated instead. The vehicle, a 2006 Jaguar, caused severe damage to the front of the store as it traveled through the front doors, causing glass and debris to scatter. Four patrons suffered minor injuries from the debris; three were transported to area hospitals for treatment. The driver was not injured.

Around 11:30 a.m. on Sunday a vehicle traveling northbound on Dulaney Valley Road near East Joppa Road left the roadway and collided with a building. The building did not sustain structural damage, but a BGE gas meter attached to the building did, causing a gas leak. Roadways surrounding the Towson Town Center from the traffic circle past the entrance to Macy's were closed while Baltimore County Fire Department and BGE responded to the scene to shut off the gas lines and make the necessary repairs. Macy's and the parking garage to Towson Town Center were closed for a period of time but the mall remained open during the repairs. The driver suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to an area hospital. 

Both crashes remain under investigation.

Baltimore County Police are asking for the public's help in identifying this suspect who committed an armed robbery October 22 at Edible Arrangements in the Towson Precinct.

Investigators have exhausted efforts to identify this suspect, who walked into the store at 6352 York Road around 3:37 p.m. brandishing a handgun and demanding cash from the register. The suspect fled on foot across the parking lot toward York Road and, although an extensive search for the suspect was conducted, he was able to avoid capture.

Police are now asking for the public's help in identifying this robber. If you recognize this suspect or have any information pertaining to this crime, contact Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020.
