Well this is a new way to get caught: leave your ID at the crime scene.

According to Baltimore police, at 6 p.m., Feb. 6 a shoplifter was trying to steal several items from Family Dollar, 2813 Greenmount Ave.

A security guard spotted the thief trying to take food, Air Wick and sponges and tried to stop the shoplifter from getting out of the store.

You mean " it" is from Baltimore, not "he".

First the headline reads" Presidents Day" instead of" Presidents' Day" and then in a second headline the pronoun "it" appears instead of he or she. . Or maybe "it" was a robot. Anyway, I hope this level of shoddy news writing is not being taught in todays jornalism skools..
