Police Arrest Teens, Adults in Rossville Auto Thefts

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 charged with two counts of theft between $1,000 and $10,000, one count of attempted theft between $1,000 and $10,000, three counts of malicious destruction of property, three counts of the unlawful taking of a motor vehicle and one count of rogue and vagabond.

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.

Camlin was charged with two counts of theft between $1,000 and $10,000, one count of attempted theft between $1,000 and $10,000, three counts of malicious destruction of property, two counts of the unlawful taking of a motor vehicle, one count of rogue and vagabond and one count of possession of a controlled dangerous substance.

Camlin is being held on $35,000 bond at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

Another five juvenile teens were also arrested in connection with the case.

There is a difference between steeling vehicles and throwing a rock at a door. And yes, Trayvon Martin was a child - unless you have decided that a 17 year old is an adult. I'm not sure, the justice system is so screwed up today, maybe they do consider a 17 year old an adult. Trayvon Martin was doing nothing wrong except walking through a neighborhood in which he did not live. Christopher Brown was with a group of teenagers who were out doing things they really shouldn't have done but since when is loosing your life a just consequence for being destructive. They don't even execute murderers in this state. Let's make the punishment fit the crime, if you insist it was a crime.

A 17 year old may not technically be an adult but it is far from being a child. Unfortunately the media circus around TM has distorted the information we get about that case too much to come to sound conclusions but the case of CB is an example of the justice system giving the criminals too many rights. He was committing a crime, was chased by a police officer off duty, caught, and then fought to get free so he could not be identified or punished for his crime. The difference was the off duty officer did all he could to keep the suspect of a crime in place long enough to be properly arrested by on duty police. It's an unfortunate outcome but CB had the power to create a different outcome by making a better decision at multiple junctures of the incident but his criminal act and following mindset of escaping justice at all costs caused the struggle that ultimately ended his life. Now the argument from everyone from parents to the procecution will be that letting a suspect go would have been the proper thing to do in this case.

I thank the person that noticed suspicious activity and called the police. When these loser Baltimore City criminals realize that "don't snitch" doesn't work in Baltimore County, maybe they will go somewhere else. Thanks to all Baltimore County residents that are vigilant and report ALL suspicious activity.
