Police Blotter is a sampling of crimes from police reports in Baltimore City and Baltimore County.

Baltimore City

Central District

Drug arrest: After noticing what appeared to be an abandoned car parked on a curb in the 1900 block of N. Fulton Ave. about 11:30 a.m. Sunday, Officer Bill Murray examined the vehicle's interior while awaiting a tow truck. In its trunk, he found 174 capsules of cocaine - valued at nearly $3,500 - and $138 in the glove box. Moments later, a man, 18, appeared and told Murray he had been driving the car earlier when it was carjacked - an account he subsequently retracted. Charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine and making a false statement to police was Tyrel Goodwin of the 1500 block of Madison Ave.

Northeastern District

Burglary/arrest: A boy, 10, was arrested Sunday shortly after he broke into a house in the 3800 block of Evergreen Ave. and stole wall posters, a videocassette recorder, a television and a skateboard -all valued at more than $1,000.

Southwestern District

Robbery try: Two women and a child were exiting a car in the 5300 block of Wendley Road about 9 p.m. Sunday when a gunman demanded their money. When one of the women scolded the gunman for scaring the child, he fled.

Baltimore County

Garrison Precinct

Burglary: Someone entered Red Garter, a leather clothing store in the 1700 block of Reisterstown Road in Randallstown, through a door during the weekend and stole $25,000 worth of skirts, vests, pants and blazers.
