Fugitive capture 986, which occurred four days after the man's image and violent rap sheet were broadcast throughout the nation March 22, was sure to bring a good night's rest to some crime-weary residents in Northeast Baltimore. As John Walsh spoke about the nabbing, he could barely contain his exhilaration: "My producers just called to say that they caught Kevin (Muggsy) Armstead." Armstead was sought by Baltimore police in connection with the death of "a handyman, a wonderful guy that everybody loved," said the host of the crime-fighting television show America's Most Wanted.

Hoping to reignite interest in the bizarre kidnapping and mysterious return of his mother, former Oriole Cal Ripken Jr. has announced a $100,000 reward for information leading to the man responsible. "In our minds, this is important, not only for us and our community, but for all communities," Ripken said Thursday. "We would like to get closure on this case and give all of us some peace of mind. " The announcement comes just over a year after Vi Ripken was kidnapped at gunpoint from her Aberdeen home of more than five decades, then driven around in her Lincoln Town Car. She was released within yards of her house about 24 hours later.

Confess. You're a closet Real Housewives of New York City fan. I can't tell you how many times the subject of that show has come up at recent soirees. Atlantic Trading Co.'s comptroller, Jan Braun, fully admits to being so into the show that she and sis, DC-ite Jill Bushkoff, hitched a train ride up to the Big Apple recently to see "housewife" Jill Zarin speak at a Friars Club luncheon. Braun says it was a gathering of only about 50 folks, including all the Housewives. Sans one. If you know the show, bet you know who.

The explosion in a municipal parking lot sent flames and thick clouds of smoke into the air. How could people not be excited? It isn't every day that "America's Most Wanted" comes to town. "I never saw something like that before," said Darnae Ambush, 12, of Westminster, who watched the filming with her aunt and 7-year-old cousin James Samms.
