Weekly Crime Summaries for all six county police districts, Rockville City, and Takoma Park were published September 26 to September 29.
A 15-year-old was arrested and charged as an adult in a sexual assault in Olney last August. He is being held on $5 million bond..
Takoma Park has seen a significant upsurge in burglaries, robberies, and thefts during the month of September.

The prohibition of texting and driving became law two years ago, but did not exclude reading texts. That loophole is now closed. Maryland’s Texting While Driving Law took effect on October 1, 2011 and prohibits all drivers in Maryland from using an electronic device to write, send, or read a text message while operating a motor vehicle in the travel lanes of the roadway. Using an electronic device while operating a motor vehicle is now a primary offense.
In the five years Connected Communities has been publishing we’ve accumulated a lot of valuable safety tips from the police departments covering a wide range of topics. We’ve taken a lot of this information and added it to a new section: Police Safety Tips. Information in this new section was contributed by the Montgomery County Police, the Park Police, the Rockville City Police, and the Takoma Park Police.
Montgomery County’s first female firefighter retired after 32 years of service.
