Agencies on alert for drunken drivers

County law enforcement agencies are teaming with the Maryland Natural Resources Police to curtail drinking and driving by land and sea over the Labor Day weekend.

Police efforts will focus on marinas and on the roads leading to and from them. Officers will be looking for persons driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

"If you're pulling a boat that weekend, we're going to take a second look," said Lt. Earl Brandenburg, commander of the Maryland State Police Bel Air barracks.

The Harford County Sheriff's Office also is working with the Bel Air Police Department over the weekend to crack down on alcohol-related accidents.

A Price Seafood waitress reported to Havre de Grace police on Aug. 28 that eight customers had walked out on a $126.32 check for steamed crabs, food and beverages.

The suspects, police said, are two men, two women and four children who slipped out of the restaurant in the 600 block of Water St. between 5 and 5:18 p.m.
