State's attorney candidate John Greiber appears to have exaggerated a portion of his family history in campaign literature.

A handbill distributed by the Republican candidate says he was "born and raised in Anne Arundel County."

But Mr. Greiber said Friday that his parents were living in the Brooklyn section of Baltimore when he was born.

His parents moved to Brooklyn Park in Anne Arundel County when he was 4, he said.

He noted that the two communities are closely linked.

Mr. Greiber attended Anne Arundel County public schools, including Linthicum Elementay and Brooklyn Park High School, before graduating from Southern High in Baltimore.

He also briefly attended high school in Pennsylvania.
