WESTMINSTER - The Westminster Police Department this week asked the public's assistance with its investigation of a series of gasoline thefts in the Westminster area. Police said it had received reports of four storage shed burglaries and one theft in the western portion of the city in the Royer Road and Uniontown Road area since mid-July. In each case, only plastic fuel containers of gasoline have been stolen. Investigators said the crimes had all occurred during the "hours of darkness," and in several cases locks were forcibly removed to gain access.

An independent panel created to review last year's in-custody death of Tyrone West determined that Baltimore police officers did not use excessive force but made tactical errors that "potentially aggravated the situation" and did not follow basic policies. West, 44, died on July 18, 2013, after police and witnesses said he fought with officers after being pulled over while driving through Northeast Baltimore. West's family has maintained that, based on accounts from witnesses, he was beaten to death by the officers, though an autopsy determined he died because of a heart condition exacerbated by the struggle with police and the summer heat.

Increasingly concerned about incidents involving the Baltimore police, I read the article concerning the review board and its lack of authority ( "Civilian police review board floundering," June 30). I would not want the police to think nobody cares or is watching or think that its business as usual when officers go looking for trouble and get no real discipline. Two men in Northwood say they have been stopped and beaten by the same two cops and now have joined in a civil suit.

Walmart announced Tuesday that it has donated $25,000 to the Baltimore Police Department to buy a fleet of mountain bikes, even as the retailer awaits a crucial City Council vote on whether to rezone land needed to build a new store in Remington. Officials said at a news conference attended by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake that the gift, made through the nonprofit Baltimore Police Foundation, was an act of a good corporate citizen and independent of any action pending before city officials.
