Woodlands owner offers more land

The owner of a parcel of land near the B&A Trail that the Greater Severna Park Council wants the county to buy has sweetened the pot by adding another acre and a half of woods to the package.

The Baltimore and Annapolis Railroad Co., which had been asking $1,045,000 for a 19-acre parcel, threw in the extra land after appraisals for the 19 acres came in lower than the asking price, according to Al Johnston, GSPC legislative chairman.

The County Council, which balked at the original price, is expected to vote on the purchase next week.

GSPC representatives will attend the meeting to urge the county to buy the proposed land for the Cattail Creek Recreation Area.

The property is part of 30 acres of pristine woods that extend from the B&A Trail east to Ritchie Highway. The Greater Severna Park Council has urged the county for several years to buy the land to prevent it from being developed.

Police seek robber of Severna Park bank

County police were looking yesterday for the man who robbed a Severna Park bank Tuesday morning.

Investigators said the man walked into the Bank of Baltimore in the 400 block of Ritchie Highway at 10:47 a.m. and handed the teller a note demanding money. The clerk gave the robber the cash, and he left the bank.

Police described the man as white, 5 feet 10 inches tall, 180 pounds with short brown curly hair. He was wearing a red waist-length jacket.
