Violent crimes in Anne Arundel County increased slightly in 2010 while the number of serious property crimes decreased significantly, a development county police attributed largely to the "smarter" tracking of crime trends in recent years. The statistics, released by police on Friday, showed that the total number of crimes in Anne Arundel — everything from homicides to disorderly conduct — decreased by about 3.6 percent in 2010, compared with the previous year. The decrease is in line with a longer-term drop in crime in the county, police said.

New crime statistics send a mixed message to the citizens of Annapolis, as a sharp rise in property crimes was balanced with a decline inaggravated assaults and murders for the first three quarters of the year.Deputy Police Chief Joseph Johnson said it is too early to say whether the 17 percent increase in robbery, burglary and larceny crimes can be connected to the decline in the economy. But he did attribute this year's 29 percent decline in assaults and murders to increased community-based patrols in the troubled neighborhoods of Eastport.
