Pair are suspected in two burglaries

Baltimore County police asked yesterday for the public's help in finding a man and a woman suspected in burglaries in the Dundalk and Timonium areas.

Detectives discovered similarities between burglaries in the 7300 block of Holabird Ave. in Dundalk and in the 200 block of Meadowvale Road in Timonium, police said. Witnesses said a person would jump from a 1993 Volvo, run onto a property and into an open garage or a yard to take items and return to the car before it would speed off, police said.

One suspect, identified by police as Daniel Jerome Bailey, was described as 35 years old, 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighing 145 pounds, with brown hair. The other suspect, identified by police as Nicole Lynn Moran, is described as 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 140 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes.

Police said Bailey and Moran have been charged in warrants with burglary.

Police described a green or gray 1993 Volvo with Maryland tag 2BMG63 as a "suspect vehicle."

Anyone with information was asked to call county police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 866-7-LOCKUP.


Man, 78, dies in Falls Road collision

An elderly Baltimore County man died yesterday afternoon at Sinai Hospital after the car he was driving collided with another car on Falls Road near Brooklandville, county police said.

Clifton T. Sechrist, 78, a resident of the Cardiff Charles Apartments in the first block of Nightingale Way in Lutherville, was driving a 2000 Ford Focus north in the 11000 block of Falls Road about 4 p.m. when it was struck head-on by a southbound 2002 Mercedes-Benz whose driver crossed the dividing line, police said.

The driver of the Mercedes, Michael Hembling, 38, of the 11000 block of Falls Road, refused treatment at the scene, police said.

The county state's attorney's office will determine whether charges will be filed, police said.

A ceremony is scheduled for today to mark the start of construction on a second phase of a senior housing complex seen as part of an effort to revitalize Dundalk.

Registration urged before Aug. 18

Baltimore County school officials are urging families to register their children for classes before Aug. 18.

The first day of school is Aug. 28, but by registering by Aug. 18, school staff and parents can sort out any potential paperwork problems, according to a news release from the school system. Also, early registration gives the school system ample time to allocate staff and to prepare for a smooth opening.

Families can schedule an appointment to register children at their school during business hours through the summer. Those enrolling at Windsor Mill Middle School, which is scheduled to open this fall, should contact school staff at temporary offices at Winfield Elementary School, 8300 Carlson Lane, Randallstown, or call 410-887-6513.
