Old Mill parents to meet on Feb. 11

A community safety meeting for parents of Old Mill students has been postponed from this week to Feb. 11, school officials said.

The session, run by county police, will be at 7 p.m. in the school auditorium. It comes in the wake of the slaying of Lisa Haenel, 14, whose body was found Jan. 16 in a ravine near a path many students use to cut between Shetlands Lane and Rainbow View Apartments.

Parents have complained that children have been attacked by other students as they walked home from school.

The Old Mill complex includes Old Mill High School and two middle schools. Schools are also holding assemblies for students about safety.

Glen Burnie woman wins citizenship award

Mary N. Rourke, of Glen Burnie, received a Good Citizen Award from the State Police for donating more then 300 hours of her time in six months at the Airport Division at Baltimore-Washington International Airport.

She was honored with other participants in the department's Volunteer in Police Support (VIPS) program at a recent ceremony in Pikesville.

Col. Larry W. Tolliver, state police superintendent, said, "In this time of hiring freezes, budget constraints and personnel shortages, the Volunteers in Police Support fill a much needed gap in staffing services."

Volunteers in the support program help police by doing office and clerical work and working with community outreach programs, among other duties. Information: 653-4278.

Three men are believed to be responsible for shoplifting 23 shirts worth nearly $950 Friday from a clothing store in the Marley Station Mall.

Bryan Towers, the assistant manager for Britches Great Outdoors, told police the men were in the store about 4:30 p.m., just before he noticed the items were missing. He did not see the men steal the shirts, police said.

Teen charged with being drunk, disorderly

A 17-year-old Severn boy has been charged with being drunk and disorderly at a Saturday night concert at Old Mill Senior High School in Glen Burnie.

Officer Gary Kazor, who was working a security detail at the school, arrested the teen-ager after he began overturning chairs and tables in a lounge about 9:30 p.m.

The report said the youth yelled obscenities, kicked furniture and refused to calm down when assistant principal Daniel Spak tried to restrain him.

Police said the boy did not calm down even though his mother came to the school.

He was charged as a juvenile with failure to obey a police officer and disorderly intoxication. He was released to the custody of his mother.
