Police are seeking a young man for questioning in the death of a Cockeysville woman who was crushed when a Jeep Wrangler was sent crashing through the wall of her bedroom while she slept Tuesday morning. Baltimore County homicide detectives described the man as white, 15 to 19 years old, nearly 6 feet tall with a medium build and blond hair cut short on the sides and long on top and worn straight up. Police believe the man -- seen near at least 10 other Jeep break-ins in Towson, Cockeysville and Parkville during a recent three-day period -- could have been driving or riding in a late 1980s or early 1990s red or maroon Jeep Cherokee.

From duct tape to overtime, Howard County's first effort to calculate its extra security costs caused by the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks totals $2.8 million. County Executive James N. Robey was among state leaders who met with Gov. Parris N. Glendening in Reisterstown yesterday to ask for help to fill financial holes and provide for equipment rejected in the past. "Right now, in everyone's mind, you think the worst," said county spokeswoman Victoria Goodman, who said much of the equipment the fire department wants has been requested for years, but rejected because a biological attack was considered a remote possibility.
