A chart accompanying a story yesterday about crime in Howard County included inaccurate information for motor vehicle thefts and other thefts.
Crimes in both categories decreased in 1998. There were 5,428 thefts in 1998 compared with 6,449 in 1997. Motor vehicle thefts numbered 610 in 1998, compared with 748 in 1997.
The Sun regrets the error.
