Baltimore boys admit to light rail burglary trip

May 25, 1994

Two Baltimore boys admitted to an Anne Arundel County bTC juvenile judge yesterday that they took the light rail from the city to Glen Burnie, broke into two homes, stole money from one business and were breaking into another when police arrested them March 1.

Juvenile Court Master Erica J. Wolfe ordered the youths, 12 and 15, sent to juvenile centers until June 7, when she will re-evaluate them, said William Mulford II, assistant state's attorney.

He said the youths told police that they had taken the light rail to Cromwell Station at Dorsey Road and Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard. They forced open a basement window of a home in the first block of Brown Shade Drive, where they were discovered. They fled to a nearby house in the 300 block of Central Avenue and forced open a basement window there. Then they went to the 7400 block of Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard, broke into the Treasure Trove and stole change.

Mr. Mulford said the boys were on the roof of neighboring Mom's Bakery, trying to break in through a skylight, when police discovered them at 8 p.m.

People who live near the light rail in Linthicum have complained of increased crime since the station opened.
