Police answering a series of vandalism calls in Glen Burnie Thursday night arrested three suspects at a Glen Burnie apartment complex.

William Knight of Rogers Avenue in Glen Burnie called police shortly before 2 a.m. and reported seeing youths smash DTC window of his mother's 1996 Volkswagen and drive away.

While Officer Eric Owens was talking to Knight, a similar vandalism report came in from Melissa Frank on Second Avenue, who told police vandals had smashed her car window and stolen an emergency kit, police said.

Moments later, police got a call about youths tampering with a 1996 Hyundai at Crain Court Circle.

Three officers who went to the apartment complex there stopped three suspects near the Hyundai. One of them fled, leaving behind a wallet apparently taken from the Hyundai, police said.

Officers arrested two Baltimore youths, ages 16 and 17, who admitted their involvement in the vandalism and said they had also smashed a truck window at a Glen Burnie shopping center, police said.

While on Crain Highway being taken to the police station, one youth told police he had spotted the man who had run from police earlier, police said.

Jeffrey A. Black Jr., 18, of the 800 block of Primson Ave. in Baltimore was arrested and charged with four counts of destruction of property and one count of theft, as was each of the youths. All were released to their parents.

An Arnold man was killed Thursday when he lost control of a farm tractor and it overturned, county police said.

Luigi A. Colucciello, 74, of the 400 block of W. Joyce Lane was driving the tractor on a gravel road alongside his property about 10: 45 a.m. when he lost control of it, police said. The tractor slid down an embankment and overturned, flinging Colucciello from the seat, police said.

Colucciello was pronounced dead at Anne Arundel Medical Center about 11: 30 a.m., police said.
