County police about to pounce on two burglary suspects outside a Mountain Road liquor store early Monday morning got a surprise of their own when their stakeout was broken up by a state trooper investigating the same crime.The state trooper frightened off the man driving the getaway vehicle. The other suspect walked away from Grand Ritchie Liquors, but officers arrested him anyway because his actions matched those in four previous burglaries at the store, police reports said.Sidney Larue Craddock, 41, of the 1000 block of Bonaparte Ave. in Baltimore, was charged with five counts of burglary and five counts of felony theft, police said.

The news that a police car is sitting outside former Mayor Sheila Dixon's house 24 hours a day, even during a massive snowstorm, begs the obvious joke: Are they protecting her from the public, or are they protecting us from her? The city police union is objecting to the practice of keeping guard for the former mayor, saying that as stretched thin as the force is, Baltimore can't afford to keep an officer and a car stationed outside her house. The union also objects to the guards sitting outside the current mayor's house and the home of the police commissioner.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Jessica Simpson and San Diego Chargers backup quarterback Billy Volek for speeding up the Ravens' coaching search. Now, we don't have to wait until after the Super Bowl for the Ravens to talk to all of the likely candidates. The way it was looking - until Sunday - you had to figure one or two of the top contenders would be in the postseason for at least another week, but a couple of upsets have pretty much cleared the schedules of Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Jason Garrett and a couple of other possibilities.
