Car windows smashed near stores and in neighborhood

July 17, 1996

Vandals smashed windows of cars parked at a Glen Burnie shopping center and in a Glen Burnie neighborhood Saturday, ** causing hundreds of dollars worth of damage, county police said.

Police do not have descriptions of the vandals who broke the windows of seven cars and trucks parked in the lot of Governor Plaza in the 6600 block of Ritchie Highway between midnight and 6 a.m. Saturday.

Nothing was taken from the cars, although the vandals went through the glove box of at least one car, a 1996 Nissan Altima, police said.

Three teen-agers are suspected in at least six window smashings in the Lehigh neighborhood near Oakwood Elementary School. Residents on Gloucester, Crawford and King George drives reported to police that they saw three boys, two riding bicycles and one on in-line skates, near their cars before they heard breaking glass shortly after midnight.

Police do not think the incidents at the two locations are related.

Pair charged in theft of clothes from Macy's

Police arrested a Reisterstown woman and a Baltimore man Sunday on charges they stole $321 worth of clothes from the Macy's at Marley Station, county police said.

Wendy Denise Distance, 27, of the 100 block of Brookbury Drive and Lamont Demory, 24, of the 4400 block of Old Frederick Ave. were charged with felony theft.

A Macy's security guard told police he saw the man pick up five shirts and two hats and hand them to the woman about 5 p.m.

The woman went into a dressing room with the items and left moments later with a bag full of clothing, police said. After the couple walked out of the store, police said the guard caught them and held them.
