Police seek one-word graffiti writer

March 18, 1994

Anne Arundel County police are trying to find the person who has been spray-painting the word "cool" on buildings in south Glen Burnie.

"We're speculating it's the same person because he's spray-painting the same word on all the walls," said Detective Eric Burns of the Northern District police station.

Vandalized buildings were the Glen Burnie Improvement Association pavilion behind South Crain Highway and First Avenue, and Riley's Body Shop at 800 South Crain Highway, both on Feb. 26; and Gene's Lock & Key Service at 500 South Crain Highway, and the Raymond C. Fink Funeral Home at 426 South Crain Highway, both on Feb. 16.

Police are speculating that a juvenile from the area is responsible. However, Detective Burns said, Baltimore youths come to spray-paint in the northern part of the county and area youths do the same in the city.

Anyone with information is asked to call 222-6135.


* Glen Burnie: Burglars broke into an apartment in the 7800 block of Woodside Terrace between 5:10 a.m. and 2:20 p.m. Tuesday and took a stereo system, jewelry and a television, all valued at $1,600.
