Store manager accuses woman of stealing shirts

The manager of the One Price Clothing Store in the 5000 block of Ritchie Highway told police that a woman stole two sweat shirts from a display rack Saturday.

According to the police report, the woman walked into the store at 3:46 p.m. and took a red sweat shirt and a white sweat shirt that were on the rack near the door and walked out without paying.

The woman screamed at the manager when he confronted her. He went inside the store and called police.

Case of the leaking fluid was really no mystery

An off-duty volunteer firefighter noticed it first about 11 p.m. one night last week -- something suspicious leaking from a truck parked in the 800 block of Barwood Court -- and flagged down a passing county police officer. He called the county Fire Department, which sent a Hazardous Materials unit to the scene.

The firefighters called the state Department of the Environment, which sent representatives.

The fluid -- believed to be fuel -- was still leaking at midnight. Officials took samples and sent them to a lab to be tested.

At 5:15 the next morning, Neal Jones, of the Department of the Environment, had it nailed down. The fluid was water.

Alleged illegal alien arrested at BWI

County police operating an undercover drug investigation at the Baltimore-Washington International Airport Amtrak station arrested an alleged illegal alien from Colombia Thursday.

Officers said they questioned Ernesto J. Zubeldia, 36, who said he lived in Queens, N.Y., because he was acting nervously while waiting for a northbound train about 7 p.m. Police said they found $20,000 in small denomination bills in the man's bag.

They learned that Mr. Zubeldia is from Colombia, South America, and turned over their information to the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service.
