Shomrim Sentencing

Eli Werdesheim, the former Shomrim neighborhood watch crew member has been sentenced to a six-year suspended sentence and three years of probation for the beating of a black teenager.

After much commotion from the victims' family and members of the community, the County Police Department has indicted Officer James Laboard (Pictured Left) has been charged with manslaughter in the death of 17-year-old Chris Brown.

A 24-year-old who alongside his brother terrorized the city for a brief period last year has been sent to prison for killing two men in two separate robberies. Isaac Truss (Pictured Right) was given a 55-year sentence for killing 47-year-old Keith Cooper at an apartment building near the inner harbor, as well as killing Edward Jones, 50, during an attempted robbery. Truss, along with his brother Basil Truss, 30, faces a separate trial for a string of robberies committed during that same time period.*

Almost a year and a half ago a police officer apparently shot himself while insisting he was the victim of a robbery gone awry. Said officer, Detective Anthony N. Fata, is finally facing the music, and is now charged with four counts of perjury.

The murder of an as-of-yet unidentified man in the 4600 block of Norfolk Ave. is just one of several recent killings as part of a spate of violence in a normally quiet area.*

A man is ejected out of, and then crushed by, a stolen car during a fiery crash on I-295 and Annapolis Road. 

An Essex woman was found shot to death early this morning in the Marlyn Garden Apartments off Brunswick Road.

The latest North Baltimore crime report has thefts in large quantities, including that of deoderant and JHU t-shirts, as well as the usual car thefts and residential burglaries.

A 19-year-old Towson man is in critical condition after losing a fight with County police. The suspect was continually violating a protective order and visiting his baby momma, evidently an attempt to extract the suspect from hiding spot did not go according to plan, putting the man's skull on the receiving end of a blunt flashlight.

The county has had a boatload of noteworthy criminal activity lately, including a church van used in a Mickey D's robbery, police being shot at in Lansdowne, a racist mother daughter team pleading to federal charges related to the hanging of a Raccoon outside a black family's home, and father and son duo Jemal Stancil, 42, and Kevin Archer, 18, charged with the accidental shooting of a neighbors babysitter.

A Monkton man took the law into his hands, and then put a gun in said hands after reaching his breaking points over rude kayakers. Monkton resident Michael Hamilton, 61, faces first degree assault charges for shooting his gun at some kayakers on the Gunpowder Falls*

A dime and a nickel in the Federal clink for convicted felonious gun possessor Eric Young, 35. Young was caught with several illegal firearms while on a bicycle in the 2800 block of E. Monument Street.

Finally, a well earned 20 years of Federal prison time for convicted murderer and serial robber Brian Johnson, 35. When Johnson wasn't robbing stores all over the City and County, he was dealing heroin, crack, coke, and some weed for good measure.
