Baltimore County police are investigating whether two sweet-toothed teenagers arrested in the theft of cookies from a Towson, Md., bakery are the same sticky fingers who lifted 24 pounds of cookies from the same place days earlier.
At 6:27 a.m. on his first day as a sophomore at Perry Hall High School in the Baltimore suburbs, Robert Wayne Gladden Jr. updated his Facebook status.
Firefighters were among those who had to be rescued Wednesday as storms flooded roads, trapping cars in rushing water and filling basements in a region still cleaning up from Hurricane Irene less than two weeks ago.
"It's a quirky crime," Ms. Armacost said. "But it is a crime, and we're looking for whoever stole the cookies."
Two 16-year-olds from Towson were caught by police at about 1:45 a.m. Monday after they were spotted by a security officer at the Towson Town Center jumping over the counter at the Great Cookie company, police spokeswoman Elise Armacost said Wednesday.
