As three lawyers for Maryland Live casino entered a federal courtroom Friday morning, it seemed that a list containing information on hundreds of high rollers was on the line, a trove they suspected had been taken by a former employee who had left for a competitor. But as the morning wore on, documents established that the lawyers' problem was considerably smaller. Helena Wong, a former host at Maryland Live, had emailed just 19 elite players.

Annapolis police say they are responding to May and June's surge in bicycle thefts in the city by adding patrols. Public information officer Amy Miguez said 21 bicycles were stolen in Annapolis in May and 15 were stolen in June. By comparison, two bikes were stolen in May 2013, Miguez said. The recent spike exceeds the expected uptick of bicycle thefts during the summer, when people use their bikes more often and leave them outside. Miguez stressed the need to lock up bikes. Only one of the 15 bikes stolen in June was locked; others were left in the front yard or in unlocked garages, she said.
