January 08, 1998|By Laura Sullivan | Laura Sullivan,SUN STAFF

County police have arrested four Pasadena youths in the past two days on charges of leaving bomb threats at their schools.

Two George Fox Middle School students were arrested yesterday after they confessed to leaving a note about a bomb in a boys' bathroom, police said. The note was found shortly before 9 a.m.

The Queens Park girls, ages 13 and 14, were charged in juvenile citations with falsely reporting a bomb.

Their arrests came one day after a 16-year-old boy from Green Haven and a 17-year-old boy from Pine Grove were charged with the same offense after a similar note was found in a boys' bathroom at Northeast High School on Duvall Highway.

Police said one of the youths confessed to leaving the note Tuesday. The note was found just before noon.

Two men carrying guns robbed a Crofton man Tuesday evening in the parking lot of the Giant Food store at Crofton Station Shopping Center, Route 3 and Davidsonville Road, police said.

Kenneth Wendell Mullins, 72, left the store, where he works, shortly after 5 p.m., got into his car and shut the door, police said. The two men appeared suddenly and demanded that he give them his keys and wallet, Mullins told police.

After he handed over the items, the robbers left in a dark-colored car, heading toward Davidsonville Road, police said.
