March 16, 2002|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Two Dundalk teen-agers charged with helping a Dundalk High School football player commit a string of liquor store robberies, have been released from the Baltimore County Detention Center after posting bond.

The football player, Derrick Lemell Breedlove, 17, was killed Wednesday in the third and last robbery when he was shot by a clerk at Modern Discount Liquors on Holabird Avenue.

Ryan Joseph Crowe, 17, of the 7000 block of Dunbar Road and Ryan Christopher Raivel, 17, of the 700 block of Oakleigh Beach Road were released Thursday. Bail for Crowe, charged with two counts of armed robbery and conspiracy, had been set at $100,000. Bail for Raivel, charged with armed robbery and conspiracy in the Wednesday holdup, was $350,000.

The teen-agers told police that Breedlove had robbed Modern Discount Liquors at gunpoint twice before Wednesday, when he was shot and killed by the store clerk, Richard D. Kosinski of Dundalk. The other robberies at the store occurred on Feb. 5 and Feb. 22.

Police said both teen-agers, who were charged as adults, admitted being Breedlove's getaway drivers. Raivel, a senior at Dundalk High, was arrested at the school where police tracked him after the robbery. Crowe, who dropped out of Dundalk High this month, was arrested at his home.

Deputy State's Attorney Steve Bailey said yesterday prosecutors have not received the results of the police investigation into the shooting. His office will review the investigation to determine whether charges will be filed against Kosinski.
