THEFT: Severna Park -- Police today were continuing their investigation into the apparent theft of a bank bag containing more than $11,000 in checks and nearly $7,500 in cash, the property of Anne Arundel Community College. Police said an employee of the school's bookstore gave a school security officer four bags containing cash and checks to be delivered to the night depository at the Maryland National Bank on Md. 648 in Severna Park. Later, the bank notified the school that three bags were received even though a deposit paper indicated four bags were to have been deposited. Police said the security officer reported that he dropped all four bags into the night depository chute, but that he did not check to see if all four fell all the way into the chute.
