MTA plans express to Orioles' ballpark

The Mass Transit Administration will offer baseball-only service to Oriole Park at Camden Yards along that route beginning April 3, Opening Day, as it begins operations on the line. Regular weekday service is to start later in April.

O. James Lighthizer, state transportation secretary, called the extended service a milestone in connecting the metropolitan area's network.

Test trains will move south from Patapsco station to Camp Meade Road. During the test period, trains will move on the tracks, crossing gates will operate and the overhead catenary wire will be energized.

"These trains are extremely quiet, and they may be moving in either direction at irregular times," said John A. Agro Jr., acting MTA administrator. "As they approach grade crossings, they will emit four horn blasts."

Service to Glen Burnie will begin by the end of July, officials said.

Brooklyn Park man charged in drug case

A Brooklyn Park man has been charged with drug distribution after police were tipped off to a drug deal at a 7-Eleven store on Ritchie Highway.

Thomas George Beegan, 35, of the 3900 block of Beach Ave., was charged with drug distribution and possession of drugs with intent to distribute.

Police said they saw a man drive off the 7-Eleven lot near Church Street about 9:20 p.m. Wednesday in a white pick up truck, which matched the description they had from an informant.

Narcotics officers stopped the truck and arrested the man after finding seven grams crack cocaine inside, police said. Authorities also confiscated his 1988 truck.
