Interim Baltimore Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III said that two of Yarborough’s guns were used in crimes in the city, and several other guns could not be accounted for.

The weapons included an Uzi submachine gun and a sawed-off shotgun.

Police said they learned about the cache from a tip given to the state attorney general’s office.


Teacher charged with abusing student

A former Anne Arundel County teacher is charged with sexually abusing one of his students.

Christopher Thomas Newman, 31, a teacher at South River High School, is charged with sex abuse of a minor and a fourth-degree sex offense. Authorities said the abuse happened in January and February when Mr. Newman was a county teacher.

School officials said he was removed from the classroom in March after the charges were filed.

The 16-year-old sophomore told her grandmother the story after she said Mr. Newman wrote sexually suggestive e-mails, reached inside her pants and kissed her in his classroom. Police also learned of the accusations from school administrators who learned of it from a friend of the student.


Teens sue police in beating while cuffed

Two teenagers who said they were beaten by police in Ocean City last summer after they were wrongly suspected of shoplifting have filed a $18.6 million lawsuit against the department.

Demar Leonard and Brandon Bisho, both 18, were standing outside a 7-Eleven last July when they said police officers approached them, thinking they were responsible for shoplifting from a CVS store a week earlier.

In their lawsuit, the teens said they were cuffed, beaten and choked by the officers, and that they were approached simply for being young black males.

Police charging documents of the incident said Mr. Leonard and Mr. Bishop antagonized police, shouting profanity and taunting the officers. An internal investigation by the police department revealed no wrongdoing by the officers.
