Ban on vagrants lifted at Big Elk Shopping Center

ELKTON - Police lifted a ban on vagrants at the Big Elk Shopping Center after the American Civil Liberties Union complained that the rule was unconstitutional.

Some merchants had complained that panhandling by homeless people who camped near the mall was harassing customers. Merchants also accused vagrants of committing petty crimes.

Police implemented the ban in December. They lifted it in March after a lawyer for the ACLU argued that it was unconstitutional for police to ban individuals on the suspicion that they may be homeless. The ACLU pointed out that police already have the power to arrest persons suspected of committing crimes.
