A suspect is in custody after bailing out of a moving car, which then crashed into a house, setting a fire on Belair Road in the Perry Hall area.

At 10:23 a.m. Thursday, a Baltimore County police officer attempted to make a radar traffic stop when the incident occurred, according to Baltimore County Police Department spokeswoman Louise Rogers-Feher.

The driver jumped out of the moving Jeep with Virginia license plates and the car crashed into the house at 9118 Belair Road, she said.

"Both the car and house caught fire," Rogers-Feher said. "An air unit was contacted, the guy was spotted and he's in custody."

The fire was minor and didn't spread, according to the spokeswoman, nor were there any reported injuries.

The suspect was being questioned by police as of Thursday afternoon.

I agree that Patch is a lot to be desired since Emily left. Thank you Marge for a story that actually pertains to the community. Not everyone may read the Baltimore County breaking news page.

And at least there was a story. My hometown patch has not had any stories in months!

Why are you so excited about hearing bad news anyways? It's nice seeing stories about positivity once in awhile. Thanks Marge!

Did you guys ever think you aren't getting news because you have no editor? Additionally, if you hate "the patch" so much, stop reading it. And take your negativity with you.
