Now here's an innovative way to crack cold cases. Law and Order scriptwriters take note. During a plea agreement in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court recently, serial burglar Patrick Francis Alfaro offered to take police on a tour of all the places he had robbed - or tried to rob - in his long criminal career. It was an offer the detectives and prosecutors couldn't refuse. In return for helping police clear unsolved burglaries, Mr. Alfaro would have several years shaved off a proposed 11-year prison sentence.

Blas A. Alfaro, a retired Howard County educator who had owned several hair salons and a beauty academy, died Sunday of prostate cancer at his Mount Airy home. He was 75. Mr. Alfaro was born and raised in the Bronx, N.Y., where he graduated from high school. He served in the Marine Corps and Army from 1946 to 1952, and later wrote a privately published memoir, Stories of GIs in Japan, chronicling his experiences serving with the Army's occupation forces in Japan. Mr. Alfaro wrote that memories of those years would surface occasionally "without rhyme or reason" and then "you are transported to the land you left behind through music, odors or food."
