Stoop returns to helm of Baltimore ATF division
The Baltimore field division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives announced yesterday that the agency has again named Theresa R. Stoop its special agent in charge, her second go-round in the job. She replaces Gregory K. Gant, who moved to the Atlanta ATF division in August. Stoop, who has served with the ATF for 24 years, was also the Baltimore agent in charge from 2000 to 2003. She most recently worked as chief of staff for the ATF acting national director, Michael J. Sullivan. As the Baltimore division chief, Stoop is responsible for criminal enforcement and regulatory issues throughout Maryland and Delaware with a focus on "keeping firearms and explosives out of the hands of violent criminals," according to an ATF statement.
Police searching for would-be Severn robbers
Anne Arundel County police are looking for a woman and three men who forced their way into a Severn home Tuesday night and unsuccessfully tried to rob a man. About 9 p.m., officers were called to a residence in the 7900 block of Telegraph Road, where a 29-year-old man told police that a woman knocked on his front door, said her car had broken down and asked to use the phone, police said. The man refused to let her in and tried to close the door, but three masked men emerged and forced their way inside. One of the men had a handgun. The robbers demanded money but didn't get any, and they unsuccessfully tried to remove a TV before fleeing. Police ask anyone with information to call Metro Crime Stoppers at 866-7LOCKUP.
