Prosecutors had no eyewitness tying Eric Jordan to a pair of armed robberies at Baltimore fast-food restaurants. But they didn't need one to win a conviction — radio waves darting from his cellphone had silently betrayed him. A few paragraphs tapped out from a prosecutor's office and the flick of a judge's pen were all investigators needed to get the phone records. That turned Jordan's Sanyo phone into a weapon against him, calling into question his assertion that he hadn't acted as a getaway driver for Aaron Graham.

Two banks, six minutes. Even by the standards set in Baltimore, Frederick McMillan was prolific. The 39-year-old, after being freed from federal prison for, you guessed it, robbing a bank, returned to his old habits and quickly made up for lost time. He held up 10 banks over 25 days last July. Police say that 47 banks were robbed in Baltimore City in 2009, meaning this one suspect was responsible for nearly 20 percent of all the holdups in one year. McMillan started his spree July 2 at the M&T Bank on West Baltimore Street, which would net him his second-largest haul — $4,097.

It was March 30, 1923, and Carroll County, like the rest of the nation, was in the depths of Prohibition. Prohibition, known as the Volstead Act, did not go into effect throughout the nation until Jan. 20, 1920. But Carroll Countians had voted to outlaw the sale of alcohol in the county six years earlier, in 1914, according to research by historian Jay Graybeal for the Historical Society of Carroll County. Prohibition remained the law of the land until the passage of the 21st Amendment on Dec. 5, 1933.
