Hopefully the police will shake down the perp, Justin Nicholas Radtke, 27, of the 4400 block of Darleigh Road, who was arrested April 28 for knocking off the Subway two doors down from Pizza Hut. More than likely, the crimes are related.

There was an officer in the parking last night at 9:30 sitting in his car. The district was still ticketing on silver spring of.course. they may catch the robbers here I suspect...they seem to be ticketing a lot lately between silver spring, Joppa, and harford just south of beltway.
