Columbia Man

The crimes appear ordinary on Howard County's November police log - two break-ins on U.S. 1, another at a Columbia home where a television and video games were taken, and a man held up at gunpoint in the village of Kings Contrivance. But the Kings Contrivance robbery - described by police in a single sentence - was far from routine. It actually was an undercover police sting that went bad, targeting a Columbia resident and suspected Bloods gang member known as "Bloody Mike. " Documents filed more recently in federal court in Baltimore say a police informant was pistol-whipped and robbed in an apartment building while making an undercover gun buy - an isolated crime, but one that gives a glimpse into violent gangs and their reach into the suburbs.

A 28-year-old Columbia man serving a 40-year prison sentence for attempted murder was given another five years in jail Tuesday after pleading guilty to robbery in an unrelated case. Gregory Imes Jr., formerly of the 5700 block of Harper's Farm Road, robbed another Columbia man in June 2008 of his wallet and cell phone after the man turned down Imes' offer to buy drugs. Imes was convicted of two counts of attempted second-degree murder and other charges last June after breaking into the home of a former girlfriend and assaulting her mother and another person.

The trial of a 51-year-old Columbia man accused of fatally shooting his wife and wounding his stepdaughter in the parking lot of the Howard County Circuit Courthouse last year has been postponed until next month. Tuse S. Liu was scheduled to be tried on murder and attempted-murder charges next week, but his lawyer requested a delay to allow a defense psychiatrist to evaluate Liu's psychiatric records. Liu, who reportedly had hoped to use an insanity defense, was examined by state psychiatrists and found to be criminally responsible and competent to stand trial.
