A federal grand jury has indicted four people, including a former employee of the University of Maryland Medical Center, in what prosecutors said was a scheme to steal patients' identities. The 17-count indictment was unsealed Thursday after the arrests of Kenneth Elliott McDowell, 47; Wendy Hinton, 21; and William White, 54, all of Baltimore. Devin Jarmal Smith, also known as Sean Jones, 20, also of Baltimore, is still being sought. "The defendants are charged with preying upon seriously ill hospital patients and their families by using their personal information to access their credit accounts and even to open new credit accounts using their identities," Rod J. Rosenstein, Maryland's U.S. attorney, said in a statement.

At least one state employee appeared before a federal grand jury this week as prosecutors continue their probe into former Baltimore County state Sen. Thomas L. Bromwell and his relationship with a construction company that received high-profile state jobs. Officials confirmed that an employee of the nonpartisan Department of Legislative Services, which provided staff for the powerful Senate committee Bromwell headed for seven years until 2002, testified Tuesday. "I am aware of one of my staffers who has been subpoenaed," Karl Aro, the department's executive director, said yesterday, adding he didn't think the employee provided valuable information.

A federal grand jury indicted a 23-year-old man yesterday in the January 2006 fatal shooting of a Security Square Mall merchant, a rare single-murder case for federal prosecutors, who took over after a state judge excluded fingerprint evidence. That evidence, state prosecutors have said, ties Brian Keith Rose of Baltimore to the death of Warren T. Fleming, 31, owner of a Cingular Wireless store at the Baltimore County mall. Rose was arrested 13 days after the shooting, which police said occurred during a carjacking in the mall parking lot. Rose was indicted on two counts of attempted carjacking resulting in death and discharging a firearm during a crime of violence.

Veteran defense lawyers and former prosecutors say it is unclear what charges, if any, might be brought as a result of a federal grand jury investigation into a loosely monitored and off-the-books expense account used by former Baltimore Police Commissioner Edward T. Norris. Federal prosecutors have wide latitude to open investigations and file charges, but experienced lawyers said the amount of money in question appears to be relatively small and noted that Norris was audited and has repaid personal expenses.

Records turned over to a federal grand jury investigating municipal tax-sale auctions show that two of Maryland's largest tax-sale investors didn't bid against each other for properties during the past four years in Montgomery County. Bidding lists were among documents demanded in the subpoena, which also sought any records from 2002 to 2007 that would show whether bidders communicated with one another about what properties they would bid on and prices they would pay, or about any inducement not to bid on certain properties or not bid at all. The subpoena is part of an investigation being coordinated by the Justice Department's antitrust division in Washington.

A federal grand jury indicted yesterday Northeast Baltimore funeral director Paul Stella, whose state license was pulled late last fall after customers accused him of plundering their prepaid accounts. "We must protect people who are cheated in the process of planning for their own funerals," Maryland U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein said in a statement urging those who think they might be victims to contact the FBI. "The investigation of Mr. Stella and his funeral home is ongoing." In January, the federal agents detailed an eight-month investigation in which the FBI said it found evidence that Stella and his employees secretly drained more than $550,000 from 140 client trust accounts set aside for future funerals.

NEW YORK -- Tennis ownership was an ongoing issue throughout the U.S. Open's two-week run, with Billie Jean King's name tacked onto the USTA National Tennis Center and the sport's heart given to retiring Andre Agassi. But when it came down to another men's title match at Arthur Ashe Stadium, Roger Federer again demonstrated that he is Master of the House. Yesterday's 6-4, 4-6, 7-5, 6-1 victory over Andy Roddick gave Federer ownership of a third consecutive Open championship, a reign accomplished only twice since the Open era came to the sport in 1968 (by John McEnroe and Ivan Lendl)

Greg Anderson, found in contempt of court for his refusal to talk, could remain behind bars for more than a year while the grand jury investigates Bonds for charges of perjury and tax evasion in San Francisco. "Sometimes sitting in the cooler for a long time may have a therapeutic effect and may change his mind," U.S. District Judge William Alsup said during a rancorous, hourlong hearing, after which authorities whisked Anderson into custody.
