The Police Blotter column on July 28 incorrectly reported that a 29-year-old man had been found hiding in the Stop Shop & Save supermarket in the 1600 block of E. North Ave. after apparently triggering its security alarm, and that William Booker of the 500 block of Silverbell Road was charged with burglary after he allegedly entered the store through a roof hatch.
In fact, Booker is an employee of the store, was not found on the premises, and was neither arrested nor charged with burglary.
The Sun regrets the errors.
Police Blotter is a sampling of crimes in Baltimore.
