Bowleys Quarters Shooting SuspectsPolice in Baltimore County have arrested two suspects in connection with the November 27 shooting of a man near Middle River.

Alicia Charline Venzke, 26, of Middle River, and Michael George Collett, 27, of Parkville, have both been charged with attempted 1st-degree murder, 1st-degree assault, armed robbery, and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony/violent crime.

Police were initially called to the area of Carroll Island Road for a man suffering from a gunshot wound to the lower body. Police have determined that the shooting occurred just before 9 p.m. in an alley between Day Coach Circle and Eastern Boulevard when Venzke, known to the victim, set him up to be robbed.

The victim was walking with Venzke in the alley toward her house when Collett arrived and they announced the robbery. Venzke shot the victim when he attempted to flee, striking him in the leg.

Venzke and Collett fled to her nearby home after the robbery attempt, where they were arrested the following day. Venzke was in possession of a gun at the time of her arrest, and a second gun was recovered in her home during the execution of a search warrant.

Old Key Bank Perry HallCould a former bank building in Perry Hall soon become a doughnut shop?

It’s a very real possibility, according to Baltimore County Councilman David Marks.

Councilman Marks revealed on Friday that an application has been submitted to convert the old bank building in Perry Hall’s Silver Spring Shopping Center, located near the intersection of Belair Road and Silver Spring Road, into a Dunkin’ Donuts.

The application says the following: “The proposed project is to take over the existing freestanding bank (1,864 sf) and convert it to (a) Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant with a drive-thru.”

The application will be considered by the Baltimore County Development Review Committee.
