A series of carjackings -- two of them apparently committed by the same suspects -- led yesterday to the arrest of two men, the search for two others and kept police busy in three jurisdictions.At about 1: 15 Friday morning, three men with guns approached the truck driver delivering bread to a McDonald's in the 2100 block of York Road in Timonium, Baltimore County police spokesman Bill Toohey said.The trio tied up the driver and put him in the back of his truck. Armed with the guns, and using the driver's hand truck and a load of buns, the trio then tried to enter the restaurant, but employees wouldn't let them in.The three then untied the deliveryman and forced him to drive to Greenside Drive, near Cockeysville, where they left him tied up and gagged in his truck.

Trying to figure out how a handcuffed prisoner escaped from the back of a locked patrol car, Baltimore police have another mystery on their hands: Why was the man wearing old, police-issued body armor?Investigators have determined that a bullet-resistant vest worn by the suspect -- who escaped during his arrest April 25 and is being sought -- was formerly worn by a city police officer.Both questions appeared to involve missteps -- officers leaving their prisoner unattended in the police car, and a protective vest stored at police headquarters turning up on the street.
