Two-alarm fire damages nightclub in Rosedale

ROSEDALE -- A pre-dawn two-alarm fire heavily damaged the Strawberry 5000 nightclub in the 7900 block of Pulaski Highway yesterday, Baltimore County fire officials said.

Only a "very aggressive interior attack" on the flames by firefighters from the Golden Ring station saved the one-story building from total ruin, said Lt. Vernon S. Adamson, spokesman for the Baltimore County Fire Department.

No cause has been determined for the fire, which began at 5:46 a.m., Adamson said.

Police arrest man in undercover drug sting

FREDERICK -- One of the unluckiest drug suspects in Frederick picked the wrong car to jump into yesterday.

Officers Robert Brown and Keith Donovan were working undercover downtown at 2:20 a.m. when they were flagged down by a man who offered to sell them drugs, police said. The man jumped in the back seat and suggested driving to a more secluded spot, police said.

Brown obliged, driving to the Frederick city police station, where the two officers arrested Theodore Belton, 38, of Frederick on charges of possession with intent to distribute cocaine.
