Baltimore police found another suspect they say is linked to several street robberies of joggers and pedestrians across the city this month, this time arresting a man allegedly involved in the shooting of a man in Roland Park last week. Yahsim Vaughn, 23, was identified as one of two men responsible for wounding 36-year-old Zeb Drinkwater in the 4100 block of Roland Avenue just before 2 a.m. on Aug. 14. Police say Drinkwater was walking a friend to her car when they were approached by two suspects, who shot him. Police have said the shooting was an attempted robbery, and it came amid a string of street robberies that were particularly prevalent in the North Baltimore neighborhoods of Hampden, Roland Park and Remington.

In 1970, one of Barbara Bonnell's favorite art galleries purchased a set of 12 framed, antique lithographs - one for each month of the year - for a client who, as it turned out, didn't want them after all. The gallery called Bonnell, then of Guilford, to see if she would be interested in buying them. She and her husband, Robert Bonnell Jr., paid $2,500 for the set, which dates to 1802. On Wednesday, Bonnell, 82, now a resident of Roland Park Place and chair of its residents' association, brought the August lithograph, of a woman and her child, downstairs to the dining room to get it appraised at a "treasure hunting" event sponsored by the retirement community and modeled after "Antiques Roadshow" on TV. Bonnell guessed that the set, made in Paris, France, would be worth about $3,000 now. She was wrong.

Over a period of about five hours, a man was shot and two people were beaten early Wednesday in what police say is part of a surge in street robberies across the city. A wave of these street robberies over the last few weeks fit similar patterns of young adults or juveniles targeting distracted people and stealing their cellphones, wallets and other valuables and fleeing in cars, police said. Some cases involve suspects flashing guns, making threats or assaulting or shooting victims, according to victims and police reports.

While I have heard of no more Roland Park homes broken into in the middle of the day, crime continues, as does fast police response. Last week, we were invited out to dinner by friends who live on Roland Avenue.  When they picked us up, they told us that the previous night, many side mirrors on cars near them, including theirs, were pried loose and were found dangling. This was the day after they had just gotten their car back from the body shop...

Lisa Meagher had a full house in Roland Park in the early afternoon of July 18, with people visiting from out of town, a plumber working in the basement, and the family dog in the front yard. The possibility of a home invasion was the farthest thing from her mind. But when they locked the dog in the back yard and left the house on Woodlawn Road for awhile, the last person to leave forgot to set the alarm. While they were gone, burglars apparently used a crowbar to pry open the front door.

Conklin, a former admissions director at Roland Park Country School and St. Paul's School for Girls who was known for her warmth and sense of humor, died June 14 of colitis at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Towson.

Nobody was more patriotic Thursday than native Russian Alex Finoggenoff. Finoggenoff, who became a U.S. citizen in 2011, was literally draped in an American flag. He wore it around his shoulders, matching his red, white and blue T-shirt, as he marched with 400 others in the 17th annual Fourth of July parade from the Roland Park Library to Roland Park Presbyterian Church on the Fourth of July. "I'm just being patriotic and getting in the right spirit," said Finoggenoff, 38, of Roland Park, a teacher at Barclay Elementary/Middle School in Charles Village.
