Reward is $25,000 for information on Annapolis killing

Business associates of Straughan Lee Griffin, who was shot and killed outside his Cumberland Court home in Annapolis' historic district last month, have added $20,000 to the reward fund for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.

The reward is now $25,000, which includes $2,500 from the Eastport Yacht Club and $2,500 pledged by Crimesolvers.

Crimesolvers informants can earn the money and remain anonymous.

Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call 410-268-9000. The lead investigator is Detective Bill Johns.

Federal funds to build three fields at Broadneck

Anne Arundel County Executive Janet S. Owens has announced that $950,000 in federal grants will be used to create three recreational fields at the Broadneck Nike site.

The site will have two multipurpose fields and one baseball field. It also will have children's arts facilities and house support functions for the Broadneck Trail. The trail will be connected to the Baltimore & Annapolis Trail.

A study conducted five years ago showed a need for 25 fields in the area, said Owens, who pointed out that there are 21 fields.

Construction at the site will begin in late spring.
