WASHINGTON -- U.S. Park Police announced five arrests yesterday in a recent series of armed robberies and sexual assaults of nighttime visitors to the National Mall, the capital city's leading tourist attraction. The Park Police, charged with patrolling the Mall, said the suspects are local teenagers and young adults. City officials hailed the arrests and offered assurances that the Mall, which features the Washington Monument, Lincoln and Jefferson memorials and major Smithsonian museums, is safe for visitors at any time of day. Washington has long battled a significant crime problem but has strived to insulate the Mall and other historic sites favored by tourists.

College Park voters narrowly decided in a nonbinding referendum yesterday that their city could explore the possibility of establishing a police force. The vote was 674-649 in favor, said city election supervisor Jack Robson. The referendum, designed to gauge voter support, will bring no immediate change. Much of the support came from District 3 - an area of the city with the highest student density - where the margin in favor was 310-161. The city is policed by the Prince George's County force.

Anne Arundel County and police officials say they don't believe the recent discovery of an alleged "meth lab" in a Severna Park home is a sign that methamphetamine - which has ravaged some communities - is becoming a major problem here. "Clearly, we're keeping a close eye on [meth use] because there is always that fear that it could explode," said Lt. Glenn Shanahan, who heads the county police narcotics unit. "But we haven't seen an explosion [in use] yet." Brian Kauffmann, 33, of Severna Park was arrested and charged with possessing and selling the drug after his home was raided by federal and local officers early Monday, according to federal officials.

Donna L. Evans says she was just doing her job as a parking control agent when she wrote a citation for a car she thought was illegally parked. Then the unthinkable happened: She got handcuffed by police. Evans said she wrote a $42 ticket for a car parked during street-cleaning hours in the 1300 block of W. Pratt St. She said the car's driver complained to her, then to a nearby police officer, claiming that an official city parking permit displayed in the back window allowed him to park without fear of being ticketed.

Two incumbents and six other candidates are running for three seats on the City Council in Taneytown's May 2 election. The city of about 6,100 people is in the midst of downtown revitalization, the development of two wells and hundreds of new homes. The council also is considering whether to build a community swimming pool to replace the one closed in 2003. Residents will be asked their opinions with the July water bill. The candidates' concerns include recreation and parks, activities for teens, police and fire services, business and industrial development, which is tied by some to the revival of a bypass to serve new industry and help downtown by getting heavy traffic out of town.
