Pile of loot on Ford's hood leads police to men who broke into cars

Allison Klein

Anne Arundel officers on a routine patrol spotted something unusual on Tuesday morning: Three men standing in front of a green Ford Escort examining a spread of cell phones, GPS units and a wallet on the car's hood.

The officers stopped to talk to the men, who were on Commodore Drive in Odenton. When they examined the wallet, an Anne Arundel police press release read, they found a Maryland driver's license and credit cards belonging to a woman who lived in Ellicott City.

Upon further inspection of the car, police found more than 75 items stolen from car break-ins in Howard County, police said.

Anne Arundel police have so far linked the goods to six different victims, but they believe there are more out there, and they are working with Howard County police to find the rest.

Arrested on the scene were Baltimore residents Willis A. Bosworth, 32, and Gregorios N. Petrakos, 29, said police. They are looking for a third suspect.
