November 19, 1997|By TaNoah Morgan | TaNoah Morgan,SUN STAFF

County police arrested a 10-year-old Lothian boy on bomb threat charges yesterday just hours after administrators evacuated Lothian Elementary School because of the threat.

Police said they went to the school about 10 a.m. after someone found a threat written on an inside wall. Police searched the building but found nothing. Later, a student told administrators that he saw the suspect write the note, and the officials called police, a police spokesman said.

The boy was charged as a juvenile with one count of false report of a bomb and released to his parents' custody.

A Gambrills man's car went into a spin on Route 3 in Crofton early yesterday, bounced off a guard rail, jumped a curb, and hit a concrete pole and a fence before it stopped, county police said.

The driver, Craig Dorsey, 22, of the 2400 block of Sunshine Ave., was treated for head injuries at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center and released.

Police said Dorsey was driving north on Route 3 near Lee Street shortly before 2 a.m. when he lost control of his 1990 Toyota Corolla.

Police said alcohol and speed were contributing factors in the accident. Charges are pending, police said.

A man with a dark ski mask and sawed-off rifle robbed a Severna Park liquor store Monday of an undisclosed amount of money, county police said.

Witnesses told police that a man wearing a gray camouflage jacket and hood walked into Goska's Liquors in the 500 block of Leelyn Drive about 7 p.m. and ordered an employee to open the register at gunpoint.

The employee complied, and the man reached into the register, grabbed cash and ran to a car that was parked behind the store, police said.

Police did not have a detailed description of the robber or his getaway car.
