From Harford County Division of Emergency Operations this morning, related to Saturday’s weather. Be safe everyone!

“The temperatures are going to be close to freezing, so the risk of icy conditions exist most of the day. We may see a little snow in the morning (more near the Mason/Dixon Line) before transitioning to sleet/freezing rain. The transition zone from freezing rain and rain remains uncertain, because many areas may stay below freezing; however, the transition to all rain is greater near I-95. Therefore, the take away from all of this from the NWS " Where wintry precipitation falls, it will have an impact on travel, especially due to the cold temperatures leading up to the event."

Thanks and Be Safe, Rick Ayers

[Bel Air, MD] Keen observations by Bel Air officers, excellent teamwork, and observant citizens leads to apprehension of Interstate theft suspects –

On Tuesday, December 3, 2019 at around 7 pm, while on a holiday patrol check at the Harford Mall, OFC Jose Maldonado observed an adult female exit Macy’s with merchandise in both arms. When the female observed OFC Maldonado’s patrol vehicle, she discarded the merchandise and ran toward Boulton Street.

At the same time, Macy’s loss prevention (LP) alerted OFC Maldonado to an altercation just inside the vestibule from which the female had exited. OFC Maldonado then assisted an LP employee and apprehended a male suspect who had attempted to steal additional merchandise.

Shortly thereafter, the female suspect was located by Sgt. Ed Smith at a nearby tree line at Boulton Street. She was arrested without incident.

Total amount stolen and recovered: $1,222.00

The suspects were identified as:

Khyleil Aziz Triplett, age 21 of Wilmington, DE – charged with theft and second degree assault, held on $3,500 bond. Triplet also had an active arrest warrant from Pennsylvania.

Andrea Jackson-Deloatch, age 21 of Wilmington, DE – charged with theft, held on $2,500 bond. She also had an active arrest warrant from Elkton, Maryland.
