The following information was supplied by the Baltimore County Police Department. In cases where a criminal charge is noted, the information provided does not indicate a conviction.
Police arrested five teenagers and one adult and charged them in connection with a string of auto thefts that spanned Baltimore City and Rosedale.
Around 3:28 a.m. June 22, police received a call about suspicious activity in the neighborhood. When officers arrived, they found a van with the alarm sounding and the ignition popped, police said.
Shortly afterwards officers saw three vans driving in the area of Castle Creek drive and attempted to stop them but were unsuccessful. Later, officers again saw one of the vans driving around and pulled it over.
A group of males bailed out of the van and fled police, but were later arrested. Investigation revealed that all three of the vehicles, two 2003 Dodge vans and a 1999 Plymouth van, had been stolen.
Among those charged in connection with the incident are 18-year-old Andre Linton, of the 5500 block of Whitby Road and 18-year-old Tyler Stacy Camlin, of no fixed address.

Linton was held on $25,000 bond at the Baltimore County Detention Center. The amount was later reduced to $5,000, which was posted on June 26.
