The package was reported in Nordstrom just after 4 p.m., and police announced the incident was over just before 5 p.m. cmcampbell@baltsun.com twitter.com/cmcampbell6

Two men robbed several Anne Arundel County video stores yesterday afternoon and then led police on a wild car chase, trying to run state troopers off the road as they sped for about 25 miles through two counties, police said. The men were arrested at gunpoint in Prince George's County, after troopers boxed in their car at a dead end in an industrial park. No one was injured. But a trooper who tried to throw a strip of metal spikes on U.S. 50 to deflate the tires of the suspects' vehicle had to dive out of the way when the vehicle surged toward him, police said.

The sleeves are removed on some jackets from the shoulder down to allow easier arm movement.He does not remove them indoors. Instead, he releases various objects from his thousand pockets. He's a great collector of items gleaned from the trash: bits of wire, broken headphones, batteries, busted tools. He can fix anything, or transform one thing into another with his wide, strong fingers.

A 17-year-old high school senior was not prepared for the generosity he discovered when he began collecting coats, blankets and hats for the homeless. He soon had ballooning bags full of down parkas and woolen coats that found their way onto the backs of those living on the streets of Baltimore. Bobby Weinstein, a senior at the Shoshana S. Cardin School in Northwest Baltimore, has vowed to keep up his efforts, and is now seeking donations of backpacks, duffel bags and carrying cases, as well as toiletries, for those who travel with all they own. "What I saw reminded me of what I learned in school about the Great Depression," he said.
