The Carroll County Sheriff's Office says a 29-year-old New Windsor man died Monday when he failed to stop for an officer attempting to pull him over and subsequently got into an accident on Route 140. The incident occurred at about 6:25 a.m., when the sheriff's deputy saw a Dodge Ram 1500 traveling at a high rate of speed in the Finksburg area.

HAMPSTEAD -- Residents who notice that town police spend a lot of time at the Jiffy Mart Shell station shouldn't assume their finest are just stopping for doughnuts.They're usually investigating a "gas 'n' go," as Chief Kenneth Russell calls the thefts.People gas up, and then they go. Without paying. It happens 25 to 30 times a month at that station, and almost never at the other two large stations in town, Chief Russell said.New video cameras installed may help, he said, as soon as the staff figures out how to iron out one kink: The title showing the date and time on the screen obscures the license plate of the cars it is filming.
