Man is suspect in 2 Crain Highway ATM assaults

January 19, 1995

The same man tried unsuccessfully to rob one customer at an automated teller machine on Crain Highway early yesterday and returned 20 minutes later to rob a second customer, county police said.

Police said Bruce J. Jones, 36, of the 100 block of Furnlea Dr., went to the machine at the NationsBank branch at Crain Highway and Eighth Avenue about 12:30 a.m. A man came up behind him, held an object to his back and demanded money. The man ran off when Mr. Jones told him he had no money. Mr. Jones did not report the incident until 2:15 a.m., police said.

At 12:50 a.m., David E. Brody, 21, of the 800 block of Park Ave. in Baltimore was using the same machine when a man approached him and put a black handgun to his abdomen. The gunman demanded money, grabbed a handful of cash Mr. Brody had withdrawn from the machine and ran east one block before turning south on Ritchie Highway, police said.

Police believe the suspect waited for Mr. Brody after trying to rob Mr. Jones.

Rotary Club, students to clean up creek

The Rotary Club of Glen Burnie and members of the Glen Burnie High School Interact Club have adopted a section of Sawmill Creek for cleanup. The group staged its first cleanup in early December when about 10 volunteers pulled trash and debris from a section of stream that runs north of 8th Avenue, behind the Glen Burnie Industrial Park.

Jim Kirk, the coordinator of the Rotary Club's stream adoption project, said the volunteers will work on the waterway about twice a year.

The Rotary group is one of three groups who have formally "adopted" sections of the creek, according to Maryland Save Our Streams.

The other two groups include Cub Scout Pack 121 in Glen Burnie and Seventh Grade students from Arthur Slade Regional Catholic School.

Organizations or individuals interested in adopting a section of the creek or volunteering to assist in cleanups can call Maryland Save Our Streams at 969-0085.
