Interesting, no crime reported in Essex. Yet the Baltimore County Police were at our house asking if we had experienced any vandalism, as our neighbors truck's windows had been broken.

Hi Clarice, I started last week as the new local editor for Essex-Middle River Patch. I'm on the ground looking for news and features in the area, in addition to, of course, crime and sports. Let me know what's going on in your neck of the woods at tyler@patch.com or by phone at 410-725-4828. Thanks!
