Two murder suspects from North Carolina are now in police custody.
On Thursday, the Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) Police arrested two individuals from North Carolina who were wanted for murder and who had two firearms in their possession.
An MDTA Police officer stopped 23-year-old Rose Angelica Shultz on northbound Interstate 95 at Exit 64 in Rosedale for an equipment violation on a 2011 Dodge Avenger.
During the traffic stop, the officers were advised that the vehicle stopped was connected to a homicide in Catawba, NC. The passenger in the vehicle, 32-year-old James Vincent Rinkines, was wanted for murder by the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office.
Rinkines and Schultz were taken into custody without incident.
During a search of the vehicle, MDTA Police recovered one loaded handgun, one loaded assault rifle, and three loaded handgun magazines.
The MDTA Police charged both Rinkines and Schultz with possession of a handgun in vehicle, possession of handgun on person, possession of an assault weapon, and illegally possessing a firearm.
After Schultz’s arrest, the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office issued a warrant for accessory after-the-fact and for helping Rinkines escape arrest.
After processing, Rinkines and Schultz were transported to the Baltimore County Court Commissioner.
Both are being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.
Construction has begun on a local fire company’s new station.
On Thursday, construction got underway on the new facility for the White Marsh Volunteer Fire Company.
The company has grown to over 200 members and has outgrown its 68-year-old facility on Ebenezer Road.
The current station was built in 1949. Located between the CSX railroad tracks and Philadelphia Road, approximately 11,000 cars pass by WMVFC on a daily basis.
The station fields in excess of 3,600 calls per year.
The new facility will be built on land donated by General Motors Baltimore Operations.
It will be located at 10301 Philadelphia Road in White Marsh.
The new, approximately 20,000-square-foot facility will utilize an optimal floor plan for modern-day emergency response and is intended to meet the needs of WMVFC’s growing membership. It will feature individual bunks, an indoor training facility, showers for each volunteer, a gym, kitchen, and even a study.
“We are excited to see five years of planning come to fruition,” said Lt. Kevin Palmer, President at WMVFC. “A lot of time was spent from various members of the company as well as members of our community in order to develop, plan, and construct a fire and EMS station that can serve the needs of our community for the next 50 years. September 7, 2017 will be an important day in for our Company and the community we serve.”
A groundbreaking ceremony for the project was held in November.

Maryland state troopers have arrested a Baltimore County man who held up a bank on Monday morning in Harford County.
Keith Stacy Taylor, 38, of Essex was taken into police custody on Monday. He is charged with armed robbery and theft.
Shortly after 10 a.m., troopers from the Maryland State Police Bel Air Barrack responded to a report of a robbery at the BB&T Bank in the 2900 block of Churchville Road in Churchville.
Witnesses told investigators that the suspect, later identified as Taylor, entered the bank, walked up to a teller and asked about opening a checking account.
Taylor handed the teller a note informing her of a bank robbery. He then left the scene after receiving money from the teller.
Soon thereafter, a Harford County Sheriff’s Office deputy saw a white Chrysler Town and Country van being driven by someone who matched witness descriptions of Taylor. A trooper with the Maryland State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division stopped the van.
The trooper identified Taylor as the driver of the van and also saw money in the front seat of the vehicle. Surveillance footage from the bank positively identified Taylor as the person wanted in connection with the robbery. Taylor was arrested and taken to the Bel Air Barrack. He will be taken to Harford County central booking center for an initial appearance before a court commissioner.
