The mailman strolled from doorstep to doorstep in the Aberdeen townhouse community when a van drove up and parked across the street. Gun-toting men in green jumpsuits leapt from the back. They crept down the sidewalk and shuffled up to the front door of a house. With two swings of a battering ram, the door had been knocked in, and the men yelled as they rushed upstairs to a bedroom. All the while, the mailman kept delivering. On one level, the drug sting, carried out simultaneously at two locations by the Aberdeen Police Department with members of the Harford County Task Force, was a flop.

As the investigation into Violet R. Ripken's abduction stretched into an eighth day, police remained silent Wednesday about their leads - a strategy Harford County State's Attorney Joseph I. Cassilly said could ensure the potential suspect doesn't destroy evidence or intimidate witnesses. Investigators on the 40-person Aberdeen police force, Cassilly said, must find a balance in publicly releasing details that will help solve the case but will not provide any advantage to the man believed to have abducted the 74-year-old mother of Orioles legend Cal Ripken Jr. and widow of former manager Cal Ripken Sr. "I hope that we're successful; that's all I say," Cassilly said.

During 30 years with the Aberdeen Police Department, Sgt. James G. Testerman has seen it all, from drug arrests to shootings to high-speed chases. Unfortunately, he says, he has also seen dozens of talented officers leave the force for better pay and benefits. Testerman, who plans to retire soon, said any remedy the city might come up with would probably be too late for him. But this week, the city's police officers made a major move toward achieving collective bargaining with binding arbitration, which would send stalled negotiations on compensation and working conditions to a third party.
