The sun was barely creeping over the horizon on Thanksgiving morning, but already hundreds of cars were parked outside the Boscov's store at White Marsh Mall as shoppers hustled in and bustled out — getting a pre-turkey jump on Black Friday. On a holiday morning that in bygone years meant deserted mall parking lots, crack-of-dawn consumers lugged packages to their cars and wrestled flat-screen TVs into minivans shortly after the department store's opening at 7 a.m. By nightfall, a crowd of several hundred people anxious to get their hands on discounted HDTVs and appliances rushed into the Sears at Security Square when the doors opened at 8. Thanksgiving Day is now Black Thursday.

A Towson law firm representing eight Maryland homeowners filed a class-action lawsuit yesterday against Sears, Roebuck and Co. and a local contractor that managed a home-improvement business under Sears' name, accusing them of tricking customers into signing over second mortgages on their homes.The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Baltimore by the firm of Azrael, Gann & Franz on behalf of four Maryland couples, asserts that practices by Sears and other defendants violated federal truth-in-lending, racketeering and fraud laws.

An Owings Mills man was sentenced Friday to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole for what Baltimore County Circuit Judge Patrick Cavanaugh called "an execution" of a father of two who ran a snowball stand on Reisterstown Road. Gerald E. Sears, 33, was convicted in the 2009 killing of Scott M. Greenberg, 50, who was found with six gunshot wounds to the head in the kitchen of his parents' home after a dispute over $150 worth of crack cocaine, prosecutors said. Sears had gone to the home on Velvet Valley Way, where Greenberg was living, to sell him drugs when Sears became angry because Greenberg wouldn't pay, then shot him in the head and neck with a .22-caliber revolver, prosecutors said.

Six weeks after Scott M. Greenberg was found shot to death in his parents' house in Owings Mills in August, 2009, police arrested Gerald E. Sears and charged him with murder, robbery and drug-dealing. Police never found the murder weapon, or the wallet, bank card and cell phone they claim Sears took from Greenberg. Nor did they find Sears' fingerprints or DNA in the house. What they did get were cell phone records, Sears' admission that he'd been in the house to sell crack cocaine, and no sign the house on Velvet Valley Way had been ransacked by a burglar.
