Pasadena woman robbed at home early yesterday

A Pasadena woman was robbed in her home yesterday morning by two men who entered through an unlocked door, Anne Arundel County police said.


The men took an undisclosed amount of cash from the home in the 1500 block of Fairview Beach Road but did not harm the woman, according to police.

Police set up a roadblock on Fort Smallwood Road and were screening vehicles shortly after the incident occurred at 7:30 a.m. The suspects were described as a black man and a white man, both about 6 feet tall, 200 pounds, and wearing white T-shirts.


Three suspects arrested after theft of firearms

Police arrested three men after a burglary at a Glen Burnie sporting goods store yesterday morning in which more than a dozen firearms were taken.

Baltimore residents William Moye, 18, Jackie Dewayne Briggs, 20, and Edward Courtney Cooper, 33, were arrested, police said. They are accused of forcing open a side door and taking 11 handguns and three shotguns, according to police.

Police officers were alerted to the crime by a burglar alarm at Bart's Sporting Goods on Ritchie Highway about 5:45 a.m. They saw three men leave the scene and chased them.

One suspect was arrested at a gas station across the street, another while apparently waiting for a cab nearby. The third, who had left in a vehicle, was found hiding in the yard of a home near Glen Haven Memorial Gardens, according to police.

Police warn of burglars posing as salesmen

County police are warning Laurel residents about burglars who may be posing as salesmen.

In the past few months, several residents have reported seeing a small group of men knocking on doors in communities on both sides of Route 198, police said. If no one answers the door, police said, the men break in. Burglaries have been reported at many of the residences where the men have been seen "soliciting," police said.


Anyone who sees suspicious activity is asked to get a description of the men and their vehicle and call detectives at 410-222- 6155.
