Annapolis Police charged a man this week with dozens of counts of indecent exposure, and believe he is tied to incidents dating back to last year. Earlier this month, police said Eddie Jenkins, Jr, 20, went to the partially enclosed patio of a ground floor apartment in the first block of Bricin St., disrobed, and touched himself. Police later charged him in connection with 10 other peeping tom incidents dating back to May 2012 in the same area of Annapolis. In May, police warned the public about the peeping tom cases, and said Jenkins would sometimes knock on the sliding glass doors of a home to get the attention of residents.

In court filings last week, the city asked a judge to rule that a recent switch to an annual 2 percent cost-of-living increase for retirees — instead of a previous sliding scale tied to city employee raises — is legal. Attorney Eric Paltell, who represents the city in the case, said a ruling is needed because, "the retirees have made it crystal clear that they do not believe this is legal.

Annapolis police say they are responding to May and June's surge in bicycle thefts in the city by adding patrols. Public information officer Amy Miguez said 21 bicycles were stolen in Annapolis in May and 15 were stolen in June. By comparison, two bikes were stolen in May 2013, Miguez said. The recent spike exceeds the expected uptick of bicycle thefts during the summer, when people use their bikes more often and leave them outside. Miguez stressed the need to lock up bikes. Only one of the 15 bikes stolen in June was locked; others were left in the front yard or in unlocked garages, she said.
