'We're allowing them to be investigators again,' says Capt. in charge of Police and Community Together (PACT) unit, 'we've given them the avenues to be police officers.'

BALTIMORE — When county police officers in the Northern District PACT unit received complaints of possible drug and prostitution activity at the Motel 6 in Linthicum, they took it seriously.
Members of the unit staked out the motel on Raynor Avenue during the late-night hours of July 6 and observed what they called "suspicious activity" in the parking lot. When officers approached just after midnight, a man took off, tossing a handgun while being chased by officers.
