Just an FYI

I don't want to get all "Ah! Crime in the neighborhood" here, but I thought this was worth noting from today's Police Blotter:
Northeastern Baltimore
Robbery A boy, 15, was standing outside a snowball stand at Woodlea Avenue and Walther Boulevard about 7:40 p.m. Tuesday when he was struck in the face by two other teenage boys who robbed him of his cell phone. The crew of a city police helicopter was over the crime scene moments later and spotted a youth fitting the description of one of the robbers walking about two blocks away. Ground units arrested him. A short time later, police arrested the second suspect nearby. Police said the victim's cell phone was not recovered.
'Cause if it's not safe to buy a snowball at the Walther Boulevard stand anymore, then we're in trouble ....

And that's right by my house too.

If anyone's interested, I recently started up a blog about crime prevention & safety around here @

watched that unfold in my neighbors back yard.... I hope the kid is ok.

My daughter works at that snowball stand, I thought we were getting off easy by having her work close to home.... NOT.
