A pharmaceutical delivery driver was abducted while making his rounds in West Baltimore on Monday morning by thieves who made off with a truckload of drug products, police said. Police called the morning robbery "incredibly thought-out," and were looking for three suspects. The robbery occurred about 9 a.m. in the 2000 block of W. Pratt St., outside the tiny Westside Pharmacy and Wellness Center. The 55-year-old driver was forced at gunpoint into the back of his delivery truck and taken to an unknown location where the suspects unloaded about 80 crates of drug products.

Anne Arundel County police said they were still investigating the multi-car collision during afternoon rush hour Tuesday that killed three people - including two children - and injured six others. Police said "driver error" was likely a factor in the crash, which took place on Route 3 south near Route 32 when a truck slammed into a Toyota Camry, causing a chain reaction crash that police said ultimately involved eight vehicles. Those killed were all from Warsaw, Va., and riding in the back seat of the Toyota, according to police accounts.

OK, young'ns, here's your chance. In two consecutive elections, you've carried Barack Obama to victory. When he said, "We are the ones we've been waiting for," he basically meant you. You voted for Mr. Obama by a margin of 66 percent to 32 percent in 2008, and, despite a horrendous economy for people your age, by nearly that much again in 2012. The president announced his candidacy in 2007 by insisting, "This campaign can't only be about me. It must be about us -- it must be about what we can do together.

ATLANTA - Buttoned-down UPS is handing video gamers the keys to its boxy brown delivery trucks. In return, it expects excessive speeds, dent-free driving and a whole lot of brand awareness. The delivery giant paid to have a depiction of a UPS delivery truck embedded in the latest edition of a popular racing video game for Xbox and PlayStation2 console systems. The game, NASCAR 06: Total Team Control, is expected to be on store shelves nationwide by today. Price not disclosed UPS wouldn't disclose the price for the product placement, but spokeswoman Susan Rosenberg said the cost exceeds what UPS shells out for a single airing of a national television spot.

The first was last Friday, when a car and delivery truck collided at the intersection of Juniata and Superior streets. The second was just about 24 hours later on Route 155 near Graceview Drive. In the first, Chester James Dawson, 80, of the 400 block of South Tollgate Road in Bel Air, driving a Subaru Forrester, turned into a box delivery truck stopped and waiting to turn onto Superior Street to go to Route 155. Dawson's car hit the delivery truck right in the middle and went underneath.

Picture a one-sided tug of war in an Anne Arundel Community College parking lot: At one end of the rope is a group of students, digging heels against the asphalt to gain traction. The other end is tied to a delivery truck set in neutral, its 14,000 pounds making it a formidable challenger. The community college is primed for the return this week of the AACC Truck Pull, which began last year as one of the more intriguing spectacles on the sprawling Arnold campus. Hosted by the college's Transportation, Logistics and Supply Chain Management Program, the event, scheduled for Thursday, involves teams of students, faculty and community leaders pulling delivery trucks and racing for the best time on a closed course.

A delivery truck stocked with Berger cookies rolled out of the Cherry Hill bakery Monday morning for the first time in more than a month. The well-known sweets are finally back in stores after Berger's closure by the Baltimore City Health Department Jan. 31; the bakery was closed for operating without a city-issued food-service license. The Health Department approved the bakery's license Wednesday, and the bakery started to gear up for production the next day. On Monday, workers in hairnets and aprons frosted cookies, packed the treats and sent them off. Corey DeBaufre, whose family has been making the cookies since 1969, said the bakery would keep its regular production schedule for the time being.

Steve Appel, who's been in the business of selling cool furniture to Baltimoreans since the 1980s, called me after one of my give-a-guy-a-chance columns. It was 2009, with the recession lingering and the national unemployment rate at double digits. Baltimore's was just under 11 percent — and higher, as always, among guys between 18 and 24. Appel, the affable co-owner of Nouveau Contemporary Goods in North Baltimore's Belvedere Square, had an opening for someone from that demographic to make furniture deliveries.

Harry Tsakalos, who put the "H" in H&S Bakery and helped build the company he co-founded into a baking empire that's the largest supplier of McDonald's buns, died Thursday at his Harbor East residence. Family members said he had had Alzheimer's disease for several years. He was 93. Family and friends recalled Mr. Tsakalos on Friday as a pillar in the Greek community. The son of immigrants, he loved his work and was noted for his warmth, simplicity and generosity. "He was more comfortable with a broom in his hand than he was with meeting the politicians," said a grandson, Michael Tsakalos of Hunt Valley.

It is perhaps one of the shortest trips a UPS delivery truck has ever made. The brown, boxy, 14,000-pound vehicle traveled 90 feet in about 23 seconds in Anne Arundel Community College's parking lot as five AACC students hauled it by rope in the Inaugural AACC Truck Pull competition. "It's harder than I expected it to be," said AACC second-year student Alex Bohlman, who participated as part of a group of e-marketing course students. They posted live Twitter feeds about the competition, which was sponsored by the college's program in transportation, logistics and supply-chain management.
