A day after I wrote that the city had not cut the island-prairie in the 4300 block of Roland Avenue, the job was done. Hooray. While this is a small matter in a sea of city challenges, it is heartening to see responsiveness. Earlier this week, neighbors reported hearing footsteps and popping sounds similar to gunfire. They also reported seeing a man running from a Roland Park lane (a.k.a. alley) and jumping into a car that had been parked on our street. Not long after this, police cars with bright searchlights cruised silently up and down the street.

More venom dripping from the fangs of many of the usual suspects today in the reader comments attached to the story of the midday armed robbery of a jewelry store in the Columbia mall. Much of the banter centers on the idea that bringing mass transit into Columbia from Baltimore and Washington will make such incidents more frequent. One commenter got blasted by others for suggesting that this premise constitutes thinly veiled racism. OK, for the sake of civility, I’ll take that protestation at face value.

Taking cover from the gunfire against a low brick wall, Alsip police Officer Mark Miller watched dazed as brick particles sent flying by the bullets hit his face in what seemed like slow motion. Less than a minute had passed since Miller chased an armed robbery suspect outside of an Alsip Aldi store on June 26, 2007, and into a residential neighborhood near the library. Children were out riding their bikes and, down the street, playing in a Little League baseball game. He had been saved already by an Alsip woman who, on her backyard deck handing out Popsicles, shouted a warning — "He's got a gun, he's going to shoot you" — before suspect James Sevier could ambush Miller near a garage.

To his bar patrons, Lee Martin was a gregarious man who liked to pal around with the regulars. Behind the walls of his home, though, life was anything but jovial. Neighbors said they often heard Martin and his wife, Jaclyn, arguing. In December, she accused him of abusing her. He countered by saying she was having an affair with her drug dealer, and he was accused of punching the man in a courthouse lobby. A police document describes her as having been "stealing from her husband for quite some time" and said she has "a drug and alcohol problem."

Frederick County police say a multi-agency effort has led to the arrest of a 56-year-old man suspected of robbing eight banks between October and January. Earl Macvernon Pegram was arrested Thursday in Temple Hills. Police say he robbed banks in Glen Burnie, Crofton, Frederick, Waldorf and Falls Church, Va. In each robbery, Pegram told the teller to put money into a bag and never displayed a weapon, police said. After Comstar Federal Credit Union was robbed Dec. 4 in Frederick, investigators obtained video footage of the getaway car. Though the tag number wasn't visible, police determined they were looking for a 2002 Buick LeSabre with Maryland agricultural tags.
