Police Blotter

The Baltimore Sun

Police Blotter is a sampling of crimes from police reports in Baltimore and Baltimore County.



Extradition -- Donavan Troy White, 17, who was arrested in North Carolina about three weeks ago on a Baltimore warrant charging him as an adult with first-degree murder, was returned in police custody Wednesday after waiving an extradition hearing. White, who had no fixed address, is accused of fatally beating 39-year-old Joel Bradley with a 3-foot-long tree branch and stealing the man's cell phone. The attack - which occurred as Bradley slept on a bench in the 700 block of Cumberland St. on Oct. 22 - was caught on a police surveillance camera, and a review of calls made on the cell phone after Bradley's death led to White's arrest.


Arrest -- Darrell Barnes, 42, was arrested Wednesday at his home in the 5600 block of Leiden Road on a warrant charging him with first-degree murder. Barnes is accused of strangling Shannon Jackson, 39, whose partly clad body was found Nov. 1, 2003, stuffed inside a storm drain near her home in the 5400 block of Moores Run Drive.
