Computers stolen from city building


Nearly $200,000 worth of computers and software were stolen over the weekend from the city's Patapsco Sewage Disposal Plant at Wagner's Point in southern Baltimore, police said yesterday.

The theft was discovered about 7 a.m. Monday by Richard Banks, manager of the Department of Public Works building in the 3500 block of Asiatic Ave. Brooks told police he secured the building at 3: 05 p.m. Friday.

The building was entered through a rear second-story window, said Agent Angelique Cook-Hayes, a police spokeswoman.

Kurt L. Kocher, a public works spokesman, said the recently purchased computers were being stored at the warehouse, awaiting distribution. Kocher said the plant has round-the-clock security, and city employees are there every day. "The police are working very diligently to resolve this matter," he said.
