Paint-dumping gets man 80 hours of community service

A Baltimore man was ordered by a judge yesterday to perform 80 hours of community service for dumping lead paint into a city sewer, the state attorney general's office reported.

District Judge Askew W. Gatewood Jr. sentenced Robert Glenn Henninger, 36, to a six-month suspended jail term and a year of supervised probation. He had pleaded guilty to water pollution.

FOR THE RECORD - An article in the Aug. 12 editions of The Sun about a Baltimore man who was ordered to perform 80 hours of community service for a waste violation incorrectly stated that Robert Glenn Henninger dumped lead paint into a city sewer. Henninger directed a laborer to dump six buckets of paint-laden wastewater into a sanitary sewer.

Six buckets of paint that had been removed from the brick facade of a townhouse in the 2400 block of Foster Ave. in East Baltimore were dumped into a drain pipe temporarily left open by a plumbing contractor, the attorney general's office said.

Police seize crack cocaine, guns at house in Pimlico

Police served a warrant at a house in Pimlico yesterday and seized crack cocaine worth $100,000; an assault rifle; two 12-gauge combat shotguns; packaging material; $11,000; and a bulletproof vest.

Sgt. Darrel Oxyer, head of the Northwestern District drug unit, said no arrests were made at the house in the 5300 block of Maple Ave. He said police will seek indictments against the occupants, a man, 23, and a woman, 40.

Oxyer said crack cocaine was processed at the house and placed in baggies that sold for $10 each throughout the Park Heights area.

Man accused in 1996 killings arrested at Atlanta airport

A man charged in two 1996 slayings was arrested in Atlanta and is being held at Central Booking and Intake Center, police said yesterday.

Alex Paul Little, 31, of New York City was arrested Aug. 5 as he was getting off an airplane at Atlanta Hartsfield International Airport, said Detective Gary Hoover. He said Little was charged in a warrant with two counts of first-degree murder in the shootings of Deron Coleman, 24, of the 7000 block of Lachlan Circle in Glenmont, Baltimore County, and Charles Hayden, 22, of Dorchester, Mass.

Hoover said the bodies of Coleman and Hayden were found July 18, 1996, in the driveway of a house in Leakin Park in Southwest Baltimore. He said they were killed in retaliation for a nonfatal shooting of a major interstate drug dealer.

Downtown block renamed for radio station owner

The 100 block of St. Paul St. was renamed Cathy Hughes Plaza yesterday by Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke.

The name change honors the entrepreneur who owns three radio stations in Baltimore (WERQ, WWIN and WOLB), three in Washington (WKYS, WMMJ and WOL) and one in Atlanta (WHTA).

The local stations are located in the 100 block of Cathy Hughes Plaza.
