One gun was sold to a man later accused of using it in a carjacking in Prince George's County, police acknowledged in response to queries from The Baltimore Sun. The sales occurred last year as part of a flurry before Maryland's tough new gun law - enacted following the school massacre in Newtown, Conn.

Much has been made recently about proposed pay increases for some Maryland's politicians, but even the highest-earning elected officials don't come close to the top of the state-employee income scale. Gov. Martin O'Malley's 2012 income of $150,000 was just a fraction of more than $2 million that Terps football coach Randy Edsall and men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon each pulled in, according to an updated state salary database made available by Maryland officials under a Public Information Act request.

With Baltimore police taking (and accepting) flak recently for failing to track and analyze its officers' use of the controversial stop-and-frisk tactic, another agency has the data and isn't doing much with it, either. State law requires police agencies to forward a copy of every stop-and-frisk report to the Maryland State Police, which receives them at irregular intervals and does not sort them or enter them into a database. The agency keeps the reports for one year before tossing them, said spokeswoman Elena Wendell-Russo.

Attorney General has paid an overdue speeding ticket issued by a District of Columbia  speed camera after repeated delays drove the cost to $400, according to multiple media reports. Gansler issued a statement Tuesday saying he had paid the ticket himself even  though he says the identity of who was driving his state-issued vehicle at the time of the violation has not been determined. The ticket was issued in June 2012 for going 21 to 25 mph over the speed limit,  WBAL reported.
