Teens arrested in projectile cases on I-95

April 24, 2004

Maryland State Police arrested three Jessup teen-agers yesterday who are believed to have shattered windows of seven vehicles on Interstate 95 in Howard County, police officials said.

Two of the suspects, a 14- year-old girl and a 15-year-old boy, were arrested shortly before 9 a.m. at Hammond High School, where they are students. Information gathered by Howard County police led troopers to the school, said Cpl. Rob Moroney, a state police spokesman.

The teens were charged as juveniles with seven counts of second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, destruction of property and throwing missiles, he said. The two were released into the custody of their parents yesterday.

The third, a 16-year-old boy, was arrested about 4 p.m. at his home. Moroney said he faces the same charges and would probably also be released.

Since March 30, windows on two vehicles traveling north and five traveling south on Interstate 95 between Routes 100 and 32 were damaged, Moroney said. Nuts, bolts, ball bearings and rocks were used in the incidents, he said. No one was injured.

The investigation is continuing, Moroney said.
